UM3 flow rate affects both extruders

Hiya, 

 

i have found when I change the flow rate for one of the extruders though the printers menu whilst printing it changes the other extruder too. 

 

A right pain, will this be addressed?

 

many thanks

 

Bex

    It's intentional. There was another thread, which I currently can't find. @Daid, which I think is the head firmware developer at Ultimaker HQ, said that this was by design. Cant remember the reason :|  

    Why do you want to change the flow rate anyway? Personally I'm not a big fan of those live adjustments. I would do some tests before and change the flow in Cura according to your material.

    There is no UX reason. It's actually tracked as a bug in our system. The reason is legacy, we are still building on top of the old Marlin which does not support flow rate per extruder. Priorities prevented it from fixing it so far.

    Does this affect the actual flow rate set in Cura on a per extruder basis? Or does it behave as if adjusting on the machine?

    On the machine it behaves like that. Cura has a good flow rate per extruder (pretty much a requirement for perfect dual material prints)

    Thank you for clarification! I would have thought so, but wanted to make sure. :)

      • 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
