Cura's configurations for a double swappable extruder.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura's configurations for a double swappable extruder.

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!

Maybe the right thing it would be to have in machine "settings", not only X and Y offset but also an Z offset... yeah it sounds more clear to me...
