Printing with cyclops head

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing with cyclops head

Dear Community,

Can someone please give me a hint how to configure Cura for a cyclops head? I didn't find an option like "share single hotend", and now the print is failing, because Cura turns the inactive hotend off, causing a thermal runaway issue.

Thank you,

Marton

You could try changing the "Standby temperature" of the 1st extruder to the same temperature as the normal material temperature. That will at least prevent the printer from cooling the 1st extruder.

Cura does not have a "share single hotend" option, because mixing hotends are fairly new and there are no Ultimaker printers that support them out of the box. Personally I think it is something the firmware should be handling instead of the slicer, but that's just my opinion.

Gotta make changes in the firmware.

Ive done this on other printers, you set up both temp sensor in firmware to read the single sensor on the cyclops.

You just have to have both hotends turn on and set to the same temp when printing

    • "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.
