Dual Extrusion First Layer bad

Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual Extrusion First Layer bad

Hi,

Looks like I had messed up some settings:

Printing something with two colors (UM3) was no problem - until the day before yesterday.

Imagine: Head 1 white filament, head 2 blue filament. Printing a white square, 5 mm thick, a blue triangel in its center, 2 mm thick. The layout (in Tinkercad) is perfect. Las week it has been printed perfectly -- front a white square with an embedded blue triangel, back all white. 

Now (and I don't know why) the first layer is being printed completely by head 1 -- although it's printing the triangel seperately as if it would have liked to print it with head 2. Layer 2 and the following ones are being printed correctly white and blue.

 

Any help visible at the horizon?

 

Thanks a lot for any help.

      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.
