Changing which Extruder prints first

Recommended Posts

Posted · Changing which Extruder prints first


Is there a way to set which extruder you want to print 1st or does Extruder 1 always print first?  


I am printing with a conductive PLA in extruder 2 and am having trouble getting it to not smear or leave traces across the non-conductive material that printed first.  I want to try and have the conductive pla laid down first and then the diaelectric pla laid down.  Hoping I don't have to swap filaments.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
