Wrong head in "wrong" place..


Recommended Posts

Posted · Wrong head in "wrong" place..

I accidentally mounted the first head in the right position (most towards the back).. And when reading the guide I should have the right (second) head a bit higher than the first?!

Would it be possible for me just to have the left a bit higher (as this is my second head) than the other one? Or do I need to switch place on these two (I think i just can switch cables though)?

Regards

    sorry, mist your post earlier...

    Change the wiring would be enough I guess.

    Mounting of the hotends is the same as well, so you should be able to adjust the front one a little higher.

    While printing you need them at exactly at the same height.

    X/Y offset's can stay the same, when selecting the print in cura, remember that (standard) green coloured part is for hotend 1 and the red is for 2.

    I think youre printing area is about 20 mm smaller, be careful with that!!

    Hotend 2 hits your bed levelling screws in the back, countersink those anyhow to avoid damage. But the print will fall of the bed. you loose 20mm in the front of the machine.
