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.
