Ultimaker S5 two material infills

Posted · Ultimaker S5 two material infills

I am trying to print a part with two materials. I need to fill one section with  nozzle 1 and infill with nozzle 1 and then when i switch to nozzle 2 , and i want the infill to also be nozzle 2 .

 

Cura 4.2.1 says " The settings is always shared between all extruders " it always sets the infill to one default nozzle. I cannot independently select the infill nozzle.

 

Is there already a method to remove this link between nozzle settings ? Is there a  work around ?

    I managed to slice each part independently and generate two gcodes.

     

    Then i combined the gcodes in notepad++  and it is now working. 

     

    I hope the manual solution could become a feature in cura at some point.

    I just found the easy solution staring me in the face in cura !!!

     

    Just switch Infill extruder to "Not overridden".

    So you have two objects that you set to different extruders, set the infill extruder to not overridden and the wall extruder to a specific value? That is a good work-around for the missing infill extruder per object setting.
