Dual extruder Support

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am trying to use second extruder for support material. I made following changes in Marlin

 

1. In Configuration_adv.h

 

#define EXTRUDERS 2

 

2. In Configuration.h

 

#define TEMP_SENSOR_0 1

#define TEMP_SENSOR_1 1

#define TEMP_SENSOR_2 0

#define TEMP_SENSOR_BED 1

 

 

I could see two different extruder temperatures on LCD screen but as I give print command, second extruder is not heating at all. I tried using Cura 12.12A, Cura 13.06.4 but none of them worked. Can anyone help me to select proper cura that gives support for dual extruder.

Yes, I made that changes and restarted Cura too.But still its not working. I want to use thermistor as temperature sensor. Hence I cant use Cura's default Marlin. Can anyone post some initial gcodes that has been generated in which dual extruder is used.

    • "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.
