Do you have dual extruders?


If you set part to print with extruder 1 but select extruder 2 in cura and change settings it wont change.


In this pic I have set 1% infill and to print with extruder 1, selected extruder 2 and set to 100%. As you can see it will still give 1% infill.

    Sorry, yes to dual extruders, UM3. I had one extruder disabled. I just discovered something, even though one extruder was disabled, the enabled extruder was evidently not selected, no blue outline around the extruder box, clicked on the extruder, blue outline appeared, now all works properly. you nailed it. 

    Thank you for the response.
