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

Recommended Posts

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

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. :)
