Cura turns on wrong extruder

Recommended Posts

I have a FlashForge Creator Pro which has dual extruders. I have this connected to a rpi hosting octoprint. I installed the octoprint plugin to cura so that I can slice and instantly copy the gcode to octoprint (I also have GPX for my printer). This all works fine. When I look at the gcode that cura is putting out, it has this line at the top: `M104 T1 S210`. This sets tool 1 to 210 C. It should be setting tool 0 to 210. When I try to change the model to print with extruder 1, it still stays at t1. My current solution is to set T0 to 210 and then start the print. All of the extrusions go through that tool so it works fine (it just won't wait for T0 so I have to start it before the print.) 

 

Maybe I made a mistake in my configuration so please let me know what resources would be helpful to diagnose this issue.

    • "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.
