Dual filament holder

Recommended Posts

As i got the dual kit to actually work with newest cura.

 

im wondering if someone have solved the "2 spools on one spool holder"

When i got my ultimaker, the spool holder was to thick for these 32mm ish, spools.. And its post hot end v2, and pre extruder update.

And when i was calibriating, i had to keep an eye on the spool no2, as the retraction can knock the spool over, or make it run towards the floor.

How i got mine to work:

Used snowugrounch how to, had to enable the hot bed in his version of the marlin code.

Uploaded it.

and it started working, though the X/Y offset for the second nozzle was WAY off in the settings. (like X23, mine is now Y22,7 PS: this is not my final setting, as its not fully calibriated, but this will get you in the ballpark.)

Though it might be an glitch, as i tryed to print while the printer was just updated, with no off time to settle the electronics.

 

So, anyone have solved the arised problem with having 2 spools hanging on the back?

    • "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.
