Do You have 2 physical nozzles or 1 nozzle with 2 extruder.

if it is 1 nozzle with 2 extruders, you need to check the shared heater box.

in the image you posted you have set the part to use the 2nd extruder( based on color)

if you only want to use the 2nd extruder, you need to make sure that the infill and support etc are set to use extruder 2 as well (by default they are assigned to extruder 1.)

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      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.
