Custom Printer and dual extrusion

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First of all thanks for the great software.

I have a 3D printer (hellobeeprusa) and I am trying to set it up as dual extrusion in Cura 2.4 beta.

I've created one profile based on the ultimate_dual and changed some settings according to my printer. The issues i am facing now are two:

- when i open cura the bed is not in the middle of the STL picture that i am using of the beeprusa.

but the most important:

- in the log i always get the message

WARNING - cura.Settings.ExtruderManager.getMachineExtruders [375]: Tried to get the extruder trains for machine Custom Beeprusa Dual Extrusion, which doesn't exist.

The extruder file i did

{

"inherits": "fdmextruder",

"metadata": {

"position": "0"

},

"overrides": {

"extruder_nr": {

"default_value": 0,

"maximum_value": "1"

},

"machine_nozzle_offset_x": { "default_value": 0.0 },

"machine_nozzle_offset_y": { "default_value": 0.0 },

"machine_extruder_start_pos_abs": { "default_value": true },

"machine_extruder_start_pos_x": { "value": "prime_tower_position_x" },

"machine_extruder_start_pos_y": { "value": "prime_tower_position_y" },
