Dual extruder problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual extruder problem



When printing with a dual extruder, my printer retracts the filament and switches to the other extruder whilst the hotend is still on top of the plastic that's already been printed. This causes it to melt slightly. Is there a setting in the Ultimaker Cura software that moves the pinter head away from the print before it switches to the other extruder?
