Yes? No? I don't know? Can you elaborate the question?


Sure, it is possible to print with 2 AA printcores. Printing with 2 cores on the UM 3 will always reduce the available buildplate area though; due to the design of the printhead there are parts of the buildplate where each printcore just can't reach.  The right printcore cannot print as far to the left as the left printcore, and viceversa.

    2 AA Printcore with the same filament for printing an object.

    Left can use maximum left side and right can use maximum right side.

    But is possible that one can continue a line from the other one ?

    Is there any slicer ability to analize something like that ?
