Prime Tower uses separate X,Y dimensions for each extruder

Recommended Posts

Posted · Prime Tower uses separate X,Y dimensions for each extruder

The prime tower with dual extruders allocates separate X,Y dimensions for each extruder (concentric squares) but on layers that only use one extruder, the square for the other extruder is not printed. When the second extruder is introduced, there is nothing underneath so the filament is extruded into empty space (i.e. printed in mid-air).

 

I believe the way this should work is that for layers that only use one extruder, the prime tower should have both squares printed with that extruder. When a layer uses both extruders, each extruder should print its allocated square in the prime tower.

I am at a complete loss when it comes to reporting bugs in Cura. There is never any acknowledgement from Ultimaker and, of course, many versions of Cura released without a fix.

 

I guess that means this is NOT the place to report bugs, but I can't find anything that says where bugs should be reported.

Search for Cura on GitHub. That’s where bug reports are best submitted (in the issues tab)
