UM3E: Profiles disabled when both extruders enabled, also, bed adhesion extruder cannot be set independently

Posted · UM3E: Profiles disabled when both extruders enabled, also, bed adhesion extruder cannot be set independently

Is there some way to get Cura to not disable print profiles when both extruders are on? I keep a AA 0.4 and AA 0.8 on my machine, and if I have them both enabled, Cura just doesn't show me any of the preconfigured Ultimaker print profiles. I only get "fast". I don't understand why the print profile would care if the other extruder is enabled. It happens regardless of if I'm actually using the other extruder for a print or not, and that doesn't make any sense. 

 


Also, I tend to use brims on my prints for bed adhesion. If you have two extruders active, and set the brim extruder in settings, it changes the brim extruder for *all* the extruders. Lets say you're printing two bodies, one uses Extruder 1 (E1) and the other uses E2. You can't print the brims on each model with the correct respective extruder.  If you set the model that uses E1 to print it's brim with E1, then look at the model that uses E2, it will *also* be set to use E1. And if you change that brim extruder back to E2, it overwrites the other model to now use E2 for it's brim. It's weird.

    No. Simply because it's looking at what quality profiles it shares. Since 0.8 nozzles support less profiles, you get a less profiles. As you already found, disabling the extruder is the fix for this.

    Currently platform adhesion is a global setting (aka; Not extruder dependant). We have a potential fix for that, but it's deceptively tricky. It changes a lot of code to properly facilitate this. It might take some time untill we have that in the main Cura features.
