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

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
