2.2 will have greatly improved support for dual extrusion. You can probably get it to work with setting the machine extruder count to 2, but it will require a lot of tweaking / experimentation.
Thanks for your reply, I'm going to wait for 2.2
Actually on json file, it's only this parameter I have to add/change ?
If all goes well, open beta should be this week.
@nallath, and if not, will there be there at least a closed beta??
I´m also waiting hard to get my dual UMO productive again...
- 4 weeks later...
I didn't see 2.2 relase, I directly find the 2.3 (beta) but I still not figure out how to add second extruder and select it for support :(
does someone find it ?
There was no 2.2 release, it went straight to 2.3 Beta
So what about second extruder ?
How to declare it ?
How to use it ?
Look in the json file for "Ultimaker Original Dual Extrusion", that one got fully functioning dual extrusion implemented.
If you use windows you will probably find it here:
C:\Program Files\Cura 2.3\resources\definitions\ultimaker_original_dual.def.json
I find the solution here :
it works well to add custon printer with dual extruder, but still not test to print with it
I found this :
in this topic
but I don't know how to use it.
My goal is to use the second extruder for soluble support.
