UM3 Dual Extrusion with 2 Different Size Nozzles

Pretty sure it works.  Someone told me he did 0.8mm left core with pla and 0.4mm right core with pva.   Also I know for sure someone who used the left core for shell and the right core for infill.  You could play with this in cura before you buy anything.  There's also the option of getting 3dsolex cores which allow you to swap out nozzles.

    Wondering if this is possible? I would like to pick up the new 0.25mm AA print core but don't want to lose my ability to print with PVA. 

     

    I was wondering this too.  I imagine that it should be possible, as long as both cores are printing at the same resolution.

    My regular print routine is PLA using a .6 3DSolex AA core and a .4 BB Ultimaker core for PVA.  Just tell Cura the correct line width (I use .53 for the .6 3DSolex AA core).  Been doing this for more than a year now.

    I use the 0.8 pla laft + 0.4 polysupport right, works fine, just remember that layer height range is limited.

    Successfully using PLA 0.4 in Extruder 1 and PVA 0.8 in Extruder 2.

    However, I must override the warning/error msg from the UM3 that says different cores being used each time I print.

     

    Can this be a preference option so that we don't need to override each time?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
