Nozzle Size harder to change if Dual+ Extruders


Recommended Posts

Posted · Nozzle Size harder to change if Dual+ Extruders

Okay I figuring out dual extrusion. I change nozzle size frequently so I am used to having the nozzle size right next to material for "Extruder 1". But when I put more extruders on, that setting is relegated to machine settings > extruder 1,2,3 > nozzle size


A bit harder. Also I happen to be sharing the nozzle, one hotend, just using a Y adapter I printed and 3 extruders so I really would prefer the nozzle size was linked between extruders but I bet it would require I re-code Cura. 


Oh BTW - I find it often wipes inactive extruders on the prime tower, despite being told not to - usually re-assigning the materials will make this go away. Guess it only wastes 20 seconds per layer though for it to retract up to the Y and feed in other material.
