Command line execute CuraEngine, How to Generate T0&T1 ?

Recommended Posts

I execute CuraEngine.exe by command line. The version is 3.3, I use ultimaker3.def.json and  ultimaker3_extruder_left.def.json and ultimaker3_extruder_right.def.json. 

Now it is only one extruder, even though it have generate support.

How to modify the .json file, so that it can use both extruder1 and extruder2.

I mean, I want extruder1 be used for the model, the extruder2 be used for support.

Is there any demo?

You need to set the setting "support_extruder_nr" to 1 (instead of 0, which is the default)

If I recall correctly, this can be done by adding;

-s support_extruder_nr="1" 



I have tried 3 ways:


(1) Not modify anything of the fdmprinter.def.json, just add the command  '-s support_extruder_nr="1" '

It is not help.


(2) Just modify the dmprinter.def.json, as this:



It is not help. Just like this:




(3) If I modify the default value of "support_infill_extruder_nr", like this:



It worked! But, there is an additional cylinder!As this:





Here is my json file.

    • "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.
