Cura 4.5 and material mixing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.5 and material mixing


I see in the what's new of Cura 4.5 there is now material mixing....


"Material mixing.
A new post-processing script can be used to mix materials if you have a mixing nozzle. Mix materials of different colors in order to print in a different color than either of your currently loaded materials. Contributed by Hrybmo."


I don't understand how the post processing script works so that I can mix two materials.

I have an printer that has a single heating block and nozzle, so I should be able to do this correct?

Can anyone help me understand how to mix to materials?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's intended to support the Geeetech A10M dual extruder, but works with other similar types.

I have a HE3D printer with a dual extruder, and a single nozzle.  So, I believe the post processing will work for my printer.  What I don't understand is how to use the post processing.  What are the steps from having the model in Cura to printing.  

Any help would be great.

      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.
