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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
