How to select what extruder I want to use

Recommended Posts

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;

    • "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.
