Cura - UM3 Extended - Dual Extrusion - Begin each Layer with the same Extruder


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura - UM3 Extended - Dual Extrusion - Begin each Layer with the same Extruder

Hi,

I am dual printing with an UM3 Extended with Cura. I need Cura to start each Layer with the same extruder(conductive filament on the right one) to get good results. Unfortunatly, Cura starts each layer with the extruder, that was active last in the previous layer. Basically they take turns each layer. 

Is there a way to force Cura to begin each layer with Extruder X, even when this means more switches/time?

 

Thanks for your help!

    Hi

    unfortunately I don't think this is possible. I can remember that someone asked the same question in the past and there was no solution for it.
