Dual extruder Support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual extruder Support

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.

Did you go to cura preferences and tell it you had 2 extruders? Did you restart Cura?

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.
