IDEX multi layer height


Recommended Posts

Posted · IDEX multi layer height

I would really love to have the option for dual extruder systems to allow different layer heights for parts of the model that are highly detailed vs fill. I see there is an option to set the infill layer height to be a multiple of the normal height and you can set which extruder to use. I could really use the option for a more broad use. 


My left extruder uses a 0.5mm and my right extruder is using a 0.2mm which is working fantastic. The issue is the layer height for my 0.5mm is restricted by the 0.2mm nozzle. Mechanically, I don't see why there would be a problem setting the 0.5mm nozzle to 0.4mm layer height and the 0.2mm nozzle to a 0.1mm layer height and just do 1 layer for every 4 of the other. It would be such a useful feature for many of the things I'm currently doing and would speed up my prints drastically.
