Extruder 2 layers first?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Extruder 2 layers first?

I'm trying to print some lettering on the first layer, but the lettering material is in location 2 of my S5. By the lime the lettering is printed, the gaps left by extruder 1 are too small for the lettering to show through. 

 

any recommendations?

Yes, print the letters first.  You can tell the print order in layer view by sliding the horizontal slider.  I'm not sure what options set the print order.  I think it's the order you load the 2 stl files.  Load the lettering stl file first and the rest of the print second.  See if that helps.  Or assign the lettering to extruder1.  See if that helps.

Thanks for the tips!

 

the only way i could get it to work was to change the lettering color to extruder 1. It was a PITA, but its working now!

 

Thanks
