    If the printer definition file you are using with Cura allows for 2 extruders then yes, this can be done.

    Go to the Cura Marketplace and under Plugins scroll down and install the "Printer Settings" plugin.  You will need to quit and restart Cura.

    When you are in "Custom" mode - the Printer Settings group will be last in the settings list.  Scroll through the settings and enable "Extruders Share Heater" and "Extruders Share Nozzle".

    That should get you printing.  There will be a lot of tweaking to get the Tool Change Retraction Distance correct and there are more settings in the "Dual Extrusion" section.


    If the Printer Definition file you are using does not allow for a second extruder, you can load the Lotmaxx Shark.  You can make changes to it's settings (and change the name) so it will match your printer (build plate size and things like that).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
