Dual extrusion 10 min pauses and temp changes

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual extrusion 10 min pauses and temp changes

Hey everyone! Ive been creeping this forum for a long time and finally decided to register!...(out of desperation and frustration. lol)

 

I have a Formbot T-Rex 2 and use Cura (newest version)

 

i am having trouble with dual extrusion. it prints the fist layer using head 1 fine then it pushes my bed all of the war forward and puts both heads at 0,0 and the head temps change for about 10 min then it goes to print the next layer. after that it repeats it again. Im hoping you guys can help point me in the right direction. 

 

I can use single extrusion, with either head, and it works perfect. my printer also came a test file for dual extrusion. when i print the test file it does great and the offsets are perfect.

Hi,

 

sadly I am not familiar with your printer, but I assume that the test file that came with the printer is a .gcode fille. If that's the case, you could track down how it was produced (which software, which settings) and start from there. Maybe even looking inside the .gcode file would give you a hint since most slicers add a comment at the top (comments start with semicolon) denoting the software name and version.
