Is it possible to have both AA25mm and AA40 print cores installed at the same time?

Posted · Is it possible to have both AA25mm and AA40 print cores installed at the same time?

Good day, 

Yesterday I tried having installed both aforementioned cores on UMS5. However, print settings displayed were for AA25mm. Hence the question: Can I have both cores installed and have a choice which one to use? For instance, I wanted to have a quick print/draft, AA25 was installed in slot 1. I figured, instead of unloading the material, removing AA25mm, installing AA40mm core and loading material back in, I'd just install AA40mm into slot 2 and "mark" that for the print! But no, settings for printing were for AA25mm. 

Please advice!

    Yes, that is certainly possible. Each extruder has its own profiles. If you want to select a profile for the second extruder, you have to select that extruder above the setting list.


    One thing to realise is that because Cura generally can not "mix" different layer heights in a single layer, both extruders will need a profile with the same layer height. This limits the available profiles of you mix two different extruders. You can get around this by going in the extruder configuration in Cura and disabling the extruder you don't use.

        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.
