Flow Rate Settings help changes between nozzle selection

Recommended Posts

Posted · Flow Rate Settings help changes between nozzle selection

I created this small print to test to work through what I thought was an issue with my printer, but now I have could to realized that there must be some setting I am missing in the Cura software causing my issue.


What I was seeing was when printing from nozzle 1 is there wasn't nearly enough flow to produce any sort of part.  When I finally looked at the two gcodes I see nozzle 1 is only trying to dispense ~1/3 of the material that gets dispensed in the nozzle 2 gcode.  I went back through all the settings to ensure they were the same between nozzle 1 and nozzle 2.  All I am changing is the selection of nozzle 2 vs nozzle 1 in the cura software.  I have done a couple of things to determine that it is not the machine. 1. I took the nozzle 2 gcode and changed the T1 to T0 and that gave a good print on nozzle 1.  2. I increase the flow setting under material to be 355%  which provided a better print, but something else funky happened.  Either of those solutions to be is just a bandaid I am hoping to understand what is really causing my issue.
