How to select what extruder I want to use

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to select what extruder I want to use

I have a dual extruder printer and want to have the ability to keep two materials loaded, different colors and choose which extruder to print with. This will also allow me to select which one I use for support material also. Is there a plugin or something that will allow me to do this?

Hi Bob... I cannot help much but yes there is a Plugin that will do this for you. It was mentioned on one of the forum threads several weeks ago when someone asked the same question as yourself, but I cannot remember its name. Hopefully someone will post it for you, if not try posting under the Cura/Marlin sub section, or try and find the thread.

It depends on which printer and which slicer you use. With Simplify3D, or with and UMO+Cura you can just put the correct nozzle (T0/T1) in the startup gcode, with an UM2, using UltiGcode its different, but also very easy, you just need to make a manual change in the first gcode lines.

You can all find it here;
