Tweak AtZ plugin cura dual extrusion shifts

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

something strange (for me)

I'm using tweak atz plug in, version 2.

I load my 2 stl's, merge them. All looks great.

I use the plugin 3 times.

- start printing both hotends at 225

1- at 0.5mm 1st hotend 220 2nd to 0

2- at 75mm (at 80mm want use dual printing) 1st hotend 220 2nd 220

3- at 80mm 1st to 205 2nd to 180.

In layer view i can see the to parts shifted, (hard to meassure but couid well be the offset in cura pref.) In normal view it looks normal...

Even stranger is that the first time I ran cura (luckily got a copy on my SD card).

It all looked great, started printing and like to make a change.

Anybody had this before? or a way to solve it? Or an other plugin to use?

regards Kees

Made a other attempt.

 

First (see other message) slice was good, wanted to change some settings, and after that, only shifted parts.

Wondering, perhaps it has something to do with cache, recent files.

So back to 123D and save some new stl's different names.

First attempt of merging and slicing cura, gave only 1 shifted layer :shock: ( better than shifted parts...)

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
