Dual extrusion 10 min pauses and temp changes

Recommended Posts

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.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
