Dual Extruder - random M104 Commands

Recommended Posts

Hi Team! new to the forum, using Cura for a while.

Recently did a dual extruder upgrade - no matter how i seem to slice the file i am getting Gcode with random M104 commands to change the temperature throughout the print which is really screwing things up. For the life of me i cannot figure out where in my settings i am telling the temperature to change.

Trying to do a calibration cube (2 color)

loaded both models

assigned an extruder to each

merged the models

went through the settings for both extruders to make sure they are identical - and i get garbage Gcode (attached).

i have also tried merging then undoing to allow to control the "per model settings". same result

Tried on 3.4.1 and 3.3.1 same result which leads me to think its me!

Please keep in mind your printer has two extruders and each of them has the temperature settings. If you want to set everything to the same temperature (maybe it's good to have the standby temperature a bit lower in order to avoid oozing?), don't forget the second extruder.

    • 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.
