Cura 4.2.1 & Mankati Fullscale XT Plus

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.2.1 & Mankati Fullscale XT Plus

I have just downloaded 4.2.1, but when I open it and go to the Mankati, Profile, there is only 1 print head, mine has 2 heads.  Anybody got any ideas what I have done wrong?

It is not something you did wrong. Ultimaker does not make profiles for 3rd party printers; these are normally made by community members, or in some cases by 3d printer manufacturers. In the case of the Mankati, it was provided by a user here:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1643782

In that definition, only one extruder was specified. Ultimaker does not check if that is correct. If it is not correct (as your post implies), it needs to be changed. Opening an issue at github.com/ultimaker/cura/issues would probably be the best way to get that started.

 

In 3 years time, you are the first to mention this.

You could add a Custom FFF printer, and use Machine Settings dialog to copy over all specifics for your printer
