setting offset between the extruders

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

I'm currently modding my UMO with 2 nozzles using a similar concept used by the Ultimaker3 (retracting second extruder).

But I have some issue to set it properly on Cura.

I cannot set the gap between the nozzles (i just can set the Z offset between nozzle and the bed and it can be not different fron a nozzle to the other).

As you can image i need to tell to cura "change the hight of the bed when use the second extruder" and also "Go to a specific X/Y position before change extruder" to trig the second extruder to pop up.

How to do that?

P.S. If it gonna work I will post the project.

Thak you all!

    • "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.
