How to get Cura to print with right extruder only (UM3)

Recommended Posts

My UM3 has a turquoise filament in the primary and clear PLA in the secondary. I would like to print something using only the clear. How do I do this?

Is there a cura option (I have most current version) that would allow me to do this?

Would I have to go through G code? If so, what exactly should I do?

Thanks for any help

Click on the model you want to print in a color you have loaded. The go to the 'Per Model' Settings on the left hand side, at the bottom, just above the 'eye' graphic. There you can give each model in your build area almost all of the settings available. Just hit select and you can load all the settings you want. The top right of the flyout menu is where you change extruders.

Hope this helps. :)

    • "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.
