Cura 2.7 and UM3...Not sure to understand one of the double extrusion setting !

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 2.7 and UM3...Not sure to understand one of the double extrusion setting !

Hi All,

Just unpacked my UM3 ! Amazing...a huge step forward compared to UM2+.

For each part I try to print CURA is creating a second "print" in the top right corner for the support material ?

In this case the print is a dragon head in green...I tried several different model but still have this red support "tower" on the side !

Did I miss Something ?

Thanks,

TWL

That second print is called the prime tower you can set or unset it under the dual extrusion options
