SOLVED: Trouble creating Polycarbonate + HIPS profile in Cura 4.8.0


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · SOLVED: Trouble creating Polycarbonate + HIPS profile in Cura 4.8.0

I'm creating a new Polycarbonate + HIPS dual material profile for my Airwolf3D AXIOM Dual Direct Drive printer. This printer has two nozzles and so far, I have been creating profiles to work with only a single material, which has been working well so far. However, I want to create this new profile so I can use HIPS as support material for my Polycarb prints. 


I tried to print a test part with the profile I've made, which creates a raft out of HIPS to build the part on. But for some reason, though I have the Build Plate Adhesion Extruder set to Extruder 2, it keeps trying to print the raft using Extruder 1. I have attached a copy of the profile hoping someone could help me out. I hope I'm just missing a simple checkbox somewhere else that I needed to tick.


NOTE: I do have the prime tower enabled also.


Thank you,

Jason O

    Would love to know if anyone has run into this before. Is there anyone from the Ultimaker team who could take a look at this? I'm hoping it's not some kine of weird software bug.

    In case anyone runs into this problem. I found the solution. In my Start GCODE settings, I needed to ad "T1" on the last line, as Cura, for some odd reason, doesn't auto set the Second extruder even though I have it set in the profile settings. Adding this line at the beginning of the GCODE for the print solved the problem for me. However, Now I have a new issue related to this profile, that I'm posting about in a new thread here:

        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.
