Need help in Duplication/Mirror mode - IDEX

Recommended Posts

Posted · Need help in Duplication/Mirror mode - IDEX

Hi 3DP folks,

I am trying to work on Duplication/Mirror mode prints in IDEX with the help of CURA,

Can some one please provide any G code how to enable Duplication/Mirror mode.

I was unable to use the potential of M605 S0/S1/s2/s3. Can somebody help me with G codes!?

I tried with Simplify3D, Its working pretty good. but i need the G code or procedure to print in CURA.

    https://reprap.org/wiki/G-code - this is an invaluable resource


    There's a thread about this here:


    You can implement this as a post processing script. But note this doesn't ship with Cura by default.


    You could also try BCN3DCura as it supports IDEX out of the box. Are you using one of their printers? They have a separate forum.


    Just had a quick try and it seems your gcode needs to start with:


    M605 S5      ;enable duplication mode
    G4 P1
    G4 P2
    G4 P3


    Hope this provides clues.

      • 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
