How to print outer then inner walls with Dual Extruders (Outer and Inner Wall Extruders)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to print outer then inner walls with Dual Extruders (Outer and Inner Wall Extruders)

Hi all! I have a print set up with dual extruders, one with a support material and the other with an infill material. I have the extruders set up correctly in the sense, that the outer walls will be support material and the inner will be infill material. But I would like to print with one extruder, which has the outer support material first, then print with the extruder that has the inner infill material next. Right now with wall ordering set as outside to inside, I am able to get each extruder to print from the outside to inside, but that is not what I am looking for. With two stl files, I feel like I could eventually figure it out, but this model will eventually be duplicated so I would like to keep it as one file/model for simplicity. 

I attached a photo of the model below, essentially I would like to print what is in red first, then print what is in green. I've played with the settings in walls and have not got it to work yet. All help is very appreciated thanks!

        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.
