Hello,

installing new Mark2 is finished. It seems all  is working properly. Unfortunately printing the calibration-gcode (xy_calibration.V03.gcode), Extruder 1 works fine, Extruder 2 does not deliver filament, because its feeder does not rotate. Moving filament with extruder 2 on the display, filament is delivered as expected. Using a 24V - 400W power supply does not help. What can be the reason ?

If i remember right, you have to choose a material for the second extruder first (on the printer: Material Settings -> Extruder 2).

Without a known material there is no known temperature and the "cold extrusion prevention" kicks in.

:+1: No way that I would have remembered such a thing ...

    • "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.
