Cannot slice ... assigned to a disabled extruder

Posted · Cannot slice ... assigned to a disabled extruder

I have the BIBO Pro.  I have red in one nozzle and black in the other.  I have printed a model fine, but if I attempt to print it on nozzle 2 the software won't slice.  The complaint is out of the print area or 'assigned to a disabled extruder.' Since I'm printing the model with nozzle one, it's not out of the build area and the error only occurs when I disable nozzle one and enable nozzle two.  The error message says to enable a nozzle.  I have enabled number 2, but it isn't recognized.

 

How would it know (or care) which nozzle it's using?  Assuming the fix is probable how it's configure, what do I need to change?

 

-------------------

 

I think this is a bug.  I've set the active nozzle to 2, exited the program.  Invoked the program, nozzle two is active and the slicer works properly.  Just can't change them when it's running.

    Hi,

    if a model is loaded into Cura, it's automatically assigned to extruder 1 by default.

    If you want to print it with extruder 2, you have to mark it and select extruder 2 on the left sided menu (lowest icon).

    Regards

    Thanks... But it will not slice if I change the nozzle while the software is running.  It did slice by setting the nozzle to two then closing and re-opening the program.  When the code was run on the BIBO, it seemed OK heating nozzle two, but never would extrude any filament during the movement of the nozzle head.  I know the nozzle is working.  Have not looked into the gcode to see if I could see what it was or wasn't doing. Thanks for the help... :_)
