Resting position while warm up. Waiting dual extruder.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Resting position while warm up. Waiting dual extruder.

hi all,


I know this is a solved issued, covered by @ghostkeeper @amagro and @smartavionics  in these threads: #3451 #4511 and #4901 but it is something very difficult for me to set the parametters. The resting position of the printing head must be changed using the .def.json file. (it is not a basic level profile user).


I am asking, is not possible to set up this XY position in the profile, or as a override parametters. (similar to Prime tower XY position).


Thank you.

    You can adjust those settings from within the Cura interface - as well as save them to a profile - if you install the Printer Settings plug-in from the Marketplace.


    Otherwise, I suggest taking it up with the MendelMax support. Maybe they have experience with this issue with other users.

    For Ultimaker printers this position is set to be at the switching bay, where it needs to move to perform the tool switch.


    Many other printers have just one nozzle rather than two (with multiple feeders feeding material in it) and to them the tool switch is completely digital or just involves a retraction and unretraction. We've made this the default for third-party printers. This is most likely why it's not making any motion for your printer, while heating the other nozzle.


    For yet other printers with multiple distinct nozzles, they'd need to have it configured correctly in their printer definitions. The MendelMax falls in this category.


    There is no way to create a correct default for all printers. We need some information about your printer to do that. In this case, the information provided by MendelMax to Cura is incorrect or incomplete.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
