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!

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
