Dual extruder PID autotuning!!

Hey,

I am using chimera dual extruder in my printer. I am curious about PID settings in marlin. Should there be different PID for both extruders because there are two hotends. I checked PID autotune in repetier with command: M303 E0 S200 C5, it shows me (Kp: 44.40 Ki: 4.43 Kd: 111.31) values. Then just for curiosity, i give following command for 2nd extruder: M303 E1 S200 C5, but it came different (Kp: 22.62 Ki: 1.42 Kd: 90.06). Both extruders are E3d chimera, so it should be same or slight difference. But there was huge difference. Can anyone tell me, what is solution??

Thanks in advance.

    Did you wait until both extruders were at room temperature before doing the PID tune on each one?

    They are both right next to each other, and share the same cooling block. Running a PID tune on one would probably transfer some heat over to the other if it was still warm/hot. So if you didn't wait until both hot-ends where are room temperature before doing the PID tune, you'd probably get different results due to heat carry-over from the other.

    Otherwise, maybe check with E3D - could be different heater cores or thermistors in each hot-end.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
