Basic Question: Printing multiple materials using dual extruders

Recommended Posts

Dear Community:

I have a basic question that I hope can be answered. I would like to print two materials simultaneously, one embedded within the other on an Airwolf3D HD2x having 2 extruders. I have created two separate .stl files, one for each object, while preserving the coordinate system. I have loaded the files into Cura separately, then merged them. Each object appears to be in the correct location. How do I assign the desired extruder number and material to each object? Thank you for your help. I am having difficulty finding this procedure on the web.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
