Cura 4.12.1 Feedback for IDEX


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.12.1 Feedback for IDEX

Having recently started printing with a FlashForge Creator Pro 2 (IDEX capable), I realized the want for another feature in Cura. For example, if a print has a raft and supports created from extruder 2 and a part created from extruder 1, I would like to be able to prime extruder 1 before it begins the part printing. Extruder 2 is primed during the creation of the raft, but extruder 1 will often encounter thin placement and/or missing filament due to not being primed. The only option I see right now is to have a priming tower, but this seems excessive if you only require an initial prime when first starting to extrude from each print head. Could this be incorporated or does someone know a better solution for the time being?
