Has anyone printed successfully with dual extruding from Cura on a Wanhao Duplicator 4? I have single extrusion working, generating gcode from Cura then export to x3g with ReplicatorG. Trying the same with dual extrusion, it seems uses the same extruder. Any1 have any tips?

Cura slices so much faster, would really like to use it for slicing. It also supports using one extruder for supportmaterial.

    The 3D printing world is not so big :)

    Really happy with the Duplicator.. Very impressive prints.

    I love Cura. It is so fast compared to ReplicatorG+Skeforge. I Use it for RXL and now also single extrusion on duplicator. But for some reason dual extrusion uses the same extruder. I think it is just small details to get it printing.

    Most likely the GCode format generated with Cura is not understand when converting to dual-extrusion to x3g, as the dual-extrusion GCode in Cura is quite specific for Marlin.

    Hi everyone...

    I also got me a Duplicator 4 and it is my first printer but i already dream of Ultimaker 2 in the future.

    Marton, can i ask what i need to do to use Cura with Duplicator 4? I have tried but printer just went beserk and tried to selfdestrukt against x-axle.

    I guess it have to do with start/end gcode? How did you get it to work?

    /Regards Rikard

    I have a duplicator 4x and trying to use cura. I have already corrected my offsets so the printer prints my object in the center like its supposed to. BUT!! after the first layer it looks terrible

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
