bigger wipe &prime tower

Recommended Posts

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.

Were you able to verify the filament diameter issue (reported here; do I have to report it somewhere else?)?


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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
