Multi extruder issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · Multi extruder issue



Last week I received my new printer; a geeetech A30M; 2 extruders, 1 hot end.


I'm working on mac, Cura 4.4.1.

I download profiles for the A30M; I have 2 extruders setup on Cura.


The issue is when I use the second extruder, the hotend start to heat at the beginning of the print and stop at the end of the first layer or (the brim?)


For sample, I want to print a part only with extruder 1.

I test to print in USB, I saw on the computer screen, that the cura start to heat at 200° the extruder 0, extruder 1 is at 0°.

after the brim or layer #0, extruder 0 temp goes to 0° as extruder 1 !


other sample

If i try to preheat extruder 0; it works

If I try to preheat extruder 1 ... Nothing Append.


How could I do to make cura control extruder 1 like extruder 0 ?

    Find something !


    Use Post Processing Script twice:

    Once to replace M104 T1 with just M104

    and M109 T1 with M109



    Is it possible for the development team to manage with an option 2 extruders with one hotend by implement these features directly in CURA ?

    Hello @macaron, I have contributed to Cura a setting that informs Cura that the extruders share a heater. I don't think this feature has made it yet into a UM Cura release but if you install one of my releases you can try it out. You can find my releases at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0. Please read the README.md file there for more information.


    The shared heater setting is in the machine settings dialog...

    I saw in Cura forum that the issue is dismissed ! Developers focus on the ultimaker printer issues !


    That is entirely reasonable. That's why they get paid.

    I'm on mac (Os X). Is your releases compatible ?


    Yes, I build releases for Linux (x86_64 and armv7l), Windows and MacOS. The MacOS releases are for High Sierra or later.

      • 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
