Hey there,

when will Cura be able to handle custom Dual Extruder Printers?

Is there something still in planning

Regards

Manuel

I think it will have to wait until Cura 2.6

I hope so much to see it soon. I like Cura, but can't use it with my CTC Dual.

Why do you think you can't use it?

It's possible to modify machine settings in the .json file. It's possible to set reprap gcode. Some of use also use cura 2.4 on the beta Mark2 project (the Ultimaker2 with magnetic head changer). Did you try?

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 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 :)
