Both print cores for one print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Both print cores for one print

Good day once again, my fellow 3D people. 


As the name of the topic suggests, I am asking if I can have both print cores engaged for printing one model. Say I have a bolt with thread on both sides (pics attached). Can I have AA0.25 core print the thread part, then AA0.8 core print the middle and then AA.25 the rest? Please advise, your help and time would be very much appreciated. 


And one more thing... Probably pushing it here... but worth a try. As you can see, in the pic I have a nut and bolt in Cura. The above question stands as it is, but what would also be incredible if I could have the nut printed with AA.25 + bottom part of the bolt (thread) printer with the same AA0.25) + middle part of the bolt with AA.8 and the top part of the bolt with AA.25. Super cool question. Let's geek out and please tell me it is possible! And if so, would you be so kind and please suggest how to set this up. 


Much obliged,
