how does it work for you?

Posted · how does it work for you?

Ok, so i bought it, installed it, reloaded it, upgaded it and calibrated it. Tested original printhead to see if it was the same as before (I was getting some very nice prints) and so far all back to normal. So now what about the second printhead? now it all gets a bit confusing really, what with ''don't use this version of Cura use that version'' or ''use this slicer, even though the results aren't as good'' or ''what you want to do is write your own G-code and drop it in your firmware'' Now I understand it is ''experimental'' but to me that means calibration, temp, retraction speed, wipe tower etc not here it is you get it to work!

I will say that I have spent the last few days trying different things but so far no results worth mentioning... and I don't want to cloud anyones answer with the different configurations i have already tried (maybe I didn't do it right).

So, what is the simple ''no nonsense way that has had results'' way to get this to print a two colour print?

Is there a non official but it works Ultimaker answer? Daid??

Regards to you all

    I'll be testing and building a mac version tomorrow. I did a bunch of UI changes which I have to test. (Every single UI change needs to be tested at Mac, because random shit tends to break. Which is why the test versions are usually only for Windows. Sorry)

    And if people haven't noticed. There is a Mac-test-version available now.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
