loading 2nd material

Recommended Posts

Posted · loading 2nd material

Hi all

I've upgraded a UM2 with two Olson Block hot ends and updated the firmware from Cura 2.1.x. However I cannot find any way of loading the 2nd material. How do I tell it to do this?

Any tips or pointers to resources for printing with two colours would be very welcome.

Thanks in advance

Graeme

Well you need a special dual firmware for this and if i may add just adding a second head to the printer will probably not give you the best results (but you can try)

Maybe tinkergnome firmware can help you (not sure)

I realise from reading this forum and other sources there will be issues.

As far as firmware goes i've come across  Ginge's Marlin Builder that includes the option of the second extruder but it also asks about the heated bed temperature sensor, I don't have the spec for this, where can I find it?

Thanks

Graeme

OK thanks for the direction to TInkergnome, got it loaded and material from the two nozzles, just have to play around now.
