Dual head printing - stopping in the print to switch heads damages the print.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual head printing - stopping in the print to switch heads damages the print.

Is there some way to prevent Cura3.1, or any other Cura version, from stopping inside the print to switch extruders? I use a 2 into 1 hotend, which works really well for using PETG for the print and ABS for support; however, when Cura pauses to switch between extruders is pauses in the print which damages the print. The are other slicers which move the hotend away from the print surface to switch extruders, but I really like some of the features of Cura3.1.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
