Cura's configurations for a double swappable extruder.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Nice to be part of this community! Even if  I have an UNO since"14 I've never been part of the community!

I use my printer for several experiments and mainly for a personal project (animation in stop motion) I made on it several modifications (maybe I'll ubdate some photoes soon).

I also thought to create a sort of "swappable" double nozzle as the UM3.

I also want my second extruder to go upper and a bit more down respect to the first nozzle so it doesn't interferes with the other. I just want to move one of them  to make it easer to create. I already know hot to make it (phisically), but I have some lake in programming... so my question is:

How I can tell to Cura to use basically two different "Z axes" coordinates?

Immagine the case if the second nozzle goes down 3mm more than the first. Is enought to say in Cura>Expert Config.>"Distance Z (mm)"= "-3"? Or it doesn't work like that? Maybe that configuration modify only the "support solid".

Hope my question is clear!

Cheers!

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
