Can I make Cura force the Ultimaker 3 to print everything with single filament on Ultimaker 3?

Recommended Posts

I have printed a model on an Ultimaker 2 and it takes about 2 hours. On the ultimaker 2 with the support made from PVA, the same print takes 13 hours.

Is there a way to make the U3 act like the U2+ and print the supports out of the PLA in order to speed things up?

Yes, it is actually pretty simple to do, just choose PLA as the support extruder:



Hmm! When I look at my version, Dual Extrusion does not show the choice for support extruder.


Am I looking in the wrong place???

If the support is coming from print core 1 will I no longer need the prime tower?
