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.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
