multiple levels & colours


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · multiple levels & colours

Simple question - no idea if I'm in the correct place.

Is it possible in UC to place specific colours on to levels so they show as those colours in the slicing... ie. have levels 1-20 in Black, levels 21-23 in Yellow, levels 24-26 in Green, level 27 in black... these are the colours that will be actually printing.

I am slicing/printing an item that has 4x distinct colour levels and so I am using Gcode filament change inserted at 4x levels to do this.  See example.

I am looking for a way to have prompts to insert the appropriate colour filament as well.

1.  Is it possible for this to be added in a future build?


2.  Is it possible that you might be able to figure out a way to have a printer with "10 extruders" (and perhaps be able to give them names - ie brown, blue etc) and just have all of the start / end gcode for the extruders blank and then once you slice and save the file you open up the gcode with notepad++ and search and replace all the T commands with M600. Might work.. 

Many thanks

        New features
        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.
