Cura disables extruder heating during print

Recommended Posts

I have a problem. Cura 3.6 disables extruder heating on almost every dual-extrusion model few layers before end. I have tested it on 4 models and it disables heating on 3 of them.

One model has 260 layers and Cura disabled heating on layer 220 without any reason. All of the printing temperature settings are set to 200 in Cura

There is a reason: Cura disables the heater for any tool that is not longer used for the print. I guess the remaining 40 layers are printed with T1, and T0 is not longer used. That's why Cura disables the heater for T0.

 

This is regularly a problem for printers with multi extrusion, but single nozzle and can perhaps be changed with a postprocessing script, but i don't know if such a thing already exists.

 

I really think this should be properly handled by the firmware of those printers. If it doesn't - it's a firmware bug, not the slicers fault (IMHO)

    • "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.
