Cura 4.7.1 with IDEX

Hi all, 

 

I have  Creality Ender 3 which has got a twin extruder and twin hot end IDEX system fitted.

 

I have seen a version of cura :

 

https://www.bcn3d.com/bcn3d-cura/

 

which would work I think on this system.  Only problem is that you can not change any of the settings to accept a new printer.  Is there a way to open this software to add new printers, or could the functions in this version be copied to the general release version that we are all using.

 

my main reason. For asking is that I would like to be able to print 2 colour files using both extruders.  On normal cura you can use a extension, where you can change the filament manually, but I would like to be able to start a print in one colour and change colour at a certain layer, without stopping the print. Like pic below,  start base in one colour then change at the text.

    Hi

    You are asking in the wrong forum, because Ultimaker don't maintain or support the BCN3D Cura version. So best you ask them or in their forum if they have one.

    They have made some modifications to Cura in order to support the IDEX system. They have done this in a rather hackish way, so this was never back ported to Ultimaker Cura.

     

    It should be possible to create your own files to add to their version of Cura. I do know you need an older version of the files that UM Cura uses, since their versions is pretty outdated (I think they based it off Cura 3.2)

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
