Dual Extruder and Cura 4.3.0

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual Extruder and Cura 4.3.0

Hello everyone,


I have a dual extruder printer.


I want to print with the second extruder only . I use Cura 4.3.0 (see picture attached) but the first extruder works only (see gcode file attached). So, i have to correct the file.


Did I make something wrong or incorrect settings ?


Please, let me know.


Best regards.

    at the left red arrow; buttons to select the extruder to use for the selected model

    at the right red arrow; where you can turn of/on a extruder


    In the detail setting you can also select a specific extruder  for things like support, brim, infill etc...

    Hello everyone,


    I don't have the option showed by the right red arrow. I choosed the extruder with a right clic (context menu) on the part.

    This morning I have made an other test :  i have disabled the first extruder in the menu : settings/extruder 1/ disable extruder. And it works.


    For information, when i install a new version of Cura , i always keep the previous one, just in case.

    I have tried to reinstate the new version and  delete the old one, I still don't have the option in the print settings menu on the right, and still the same problème.

      • 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
