Cura on Raise3D E2?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura on Raise3D E2?

The printer profiles are provided by the printer manufacturers and submitted to Ultimaker for inclusion in Cura.  The E2 is an IDEX printer and it's quite possible that you MUST use IdeaMaker.  Is there a Reddit group for your printer?  There or the Raise3D support forum might be better places to find out if Cura is an option.

    Posted · Cura on Raise3D E2?

    I use IdeaMaker sometimes for my Ender 3 Pro.  I loaded a Raise3D E2 and did a couple slices just to see what differences there are.

    When using an E2 as a regular dual extruder machine Cura MIGHT work.  It may be worth setting up a Custom FFF printer in Cura and giving it an experimental try.


    There are a total of 3 modes available for your E2.  Along with the normal dual extruder mode there is also Duplicate and Mirror.  If you were to install the printer 3 times in Cura as something like "E2 Dual", "E2 Duplicate", and "E2 Mirror" you may be able to get by with different Start-Up Gcodes for each printer.

    The Start-Up Gcode for "E2 Dual" would be a normal start gcode.

    The Start-Up Gcode for "E2 Duplicate" would include an "M605 S1" line and then the normal start gcode and the Start-Up Gcode for the "E2 Mirror" printer would include an "M605 S2" line and then the normal start gcode.  It is those M605 lines that tell the printer whether to (S1)duplicate or (S2)mirror.  The Gcode moves are always the same and unlike some IDEX printers, there are no U and V axes to deal with.


    It's going to take some time and experimenting by you, but you might get Cura to work for your printer.  Raise3D seems to have separated the IDEX functions from the Gcode of a part.

      • 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
