Cura and Custom Dual Extruder Printer

Recommended Posts

Yes, i try'd a few days to get Cura with my CTC Dual working, but had no luck.

I was searching in some boards for settings, but found no help.

I saw a picture of a old version of Cura, where was Makerbot with Dual Extruder includet, but can't find this version.

Most of slicers have the ability to use Dual Extrusion out of the box.

I try'd again with the Ultimaker Dual settings, but had no luck to get ist work :(


I can dropbox you my cura  files (.json + extruders) for the mark2, so you have a starting point that produces dual reprap g-code. I'll try to remember to do it tonight :)


Hi, is it possible for me to get that file?

    • "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.
