Dual extruder and heated bed

Recommended Posts

Have a look at this page:


Builds you a custom firmware with just a few clicks. Just made one for my HBP today - seems to work fine but I haven't tested the printhead or movement yet, just heated the bed.

I noticed some differences, for example the Ulticontroller beeps differently (much better, less noisy) and the menu is slightly different. You'll definetly want to do some calibration prints first and see if everything behaves as intended.

You can select dual extruder + heated bed, but you'll have to see for yourself if it works - I don't have a dual extruder...

Thanks David and Jonny,

I created new firmware and all works fine now. That is a nice start in 2014.

Next challenge is to get the wireless OctoPrint working ..... Cura 13.12 should support that.

A prosperous and healthy 2014 to you all.

Krgds Charles

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
