Printing with Both Nozzles

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm a pretty novice printer, and the company I work for just got a new printer with dual extrusion capabilities. Are there any good sites that can explain how to control which features in a model are printed with which material? Do I have to make them separately? I was hoping it would be an intuitive feature in Cura, but it looks like that just allows for printing support material with the second nozzle.

Thanks in advance for any support!

Hi Frank, it would probably help if you could tell us what printer you have.

In Cura you have for example the option to select which extruder will print your supports under 'support dual extrusion' in the full settings.

    • "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.
