printing Surface model with dual extruders

Recommended Posts

Posted · printing Surface model with dual extruders


I'm trying to print a very thin (single wall), dual extruded model.

I made "only surfaces model" in Solid Works (extruded surfaces).

I use "surface mode" in the special modes of Cura 4.5.


For some reason you can see in the preview that only one extruder is printing and the other is doint first layer only. 

I attached the two surface models and a picture of the preview.


any Idea on how to fix it?

      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. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
