Extruder 2 heater turns off

Recommended Posts

I am using Cura 3.6.0 with a Geeetech A10M.  Dual extruders single hot end.  When I cut with Cura using extruder #1 life is good.  But if I cut with extruder #2, the skirt will print from extruder #1 at 205 deg.  Near the end of the skirt temp shifts to 190deg, the end print temp.  At the completion of the skirt the temp turns off, the head goes to the purge position (no purge block in the cut) returns to print location and prints with extruder #2 until too cool to extrude.

I can with in the machine’s firmware mix colors as long as I cut with #1 not #2. 

I am a newbie and the 100s of settings in Cura have me baffled.  Any suggestions as to where to start.

 

Thanks

Rich

    • "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.
