is it possible to manage a ditto printing with Cura 4.0?

Posted (edited) · is it possible to manage a ditto printing with Cura 4.0?

 

Hi Guys!

I have a D600 PRO creatbot that already has two extruders, but I have to modify it to make two prints simultaneously.
I read about the ditto print and I think it's my solution.
Can Cura 4.0 handle this type of printing with a double extruder configuration?
I must modify the g-code?
Or do I have to physically modify the electrical connections of the two extruders so that the two connectors join together in the same connector?
Thank you all!

Cura has no native way to do this, but I am sure it can be made to support it (for example with one or more postprocessing scripts). The problem is that I have no idea how "ditto printing" is implemented for the D600 PRO creatbot in gcode.

I looked up the D600 Pro, but it looks like the dual nozzles are very close together. How do you think this will work if you print two of the same models simultaneously?

Thanks ahoeben!
It is no problem for us to make mechanical changes to Creatbot D600.
We have already changed some things.
We just need to understand how to intervene on a software level, because here we have limited knowledge.
