Hi Daid

Is it possible give us a forcast what other changes and fixes you are going to make for the dual extrusion support for the next Cura version? You can treat it like the weather forcast: I doesn't have to be 100% accurate but at least we know if the (binary) sun(s) will shine at all... :wink:

    I'm hoping to do a new release before the end of the year. If you want, I can build test versions.

    There are more new things in my dev version, like Doodle3D wifi printing (needs some more work). Better "multiple objects" collision detection and handling. So you can tighter pack multiple objects.

    I've also fixed the object placement for dual-extrusion, so you can no longer print off the platform. Currently I still need to account for the wipe tower, but all other features are guaranteed to be printable in the volume now.

    Thanks for the forcast!

    Were you able to verify the filament diameter issue (reported http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/3511-auch-no-dual-extruders-anymore/&do=findComment&comment=27453; do I have to report it somewhere else?)?

    Test versions of that would be great!

    Tried Ooze shield + Support Material instead but the problem was that I was not able to get it off the print anymore... was such a strong combination of the materials!

    Uhm, yes, known problem. The actual 2nd diameter was never implemented in the engine only in the GUI (oops?)

    I'll see if I can add the brim to the wipe tower and build a test version. And I'll have to verify with the Doodle3D team if they do not mind having a test version out there that calls their API, they might want to do some testing of their own.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
