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.
