Option "not overridden" for all extruder settings

Posted (edited) · Option "not overridden" for all extruder settings

Hello,

please enable the option "not overridden" for all extruder dropdown-selections in CURA.

 

It would releave at least me from double-triple-checking all possible extruder-options when changing the main extruder from one to the other.

 

 

 

Cheers,

Haensel

    Hey @haensel_3d,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    Can you help me understand what problem you are running into? 

    What kind of printer are you printing on?
    What kind of extruder settings are going wrong?
    Is your issue solved by correctly enabling/disabling extruders? 

     

    Maybe we can help you with a profile with limit_to_extruder settings that work for you.

    Posted (edited) · Option "not overridden" for all extruder settings

    Hi, 

     

    Sorry if I am hijacking this thread but I am seeing a strange behaviour and came across this post when trying to find a solution.

     

    I am using Cura 5.3.0 with an IDEX printer, although the particular issue I am exeriencing is not specific to a particular printer.

     

    My issue is manifesting itself through the start G-Code variable {initial_extruder_nr} being incorrect when performing a single extruder print with the second extruder.

     

    An example setup which should allow someone to replicate and verify this behaviour would be:-

     

    1. Add the following to the Start G-Code setting of your IDEX printer:

    ;The initial extruder is T{initial_extruder_nr}

     

    2. With both Extruder 1 and Extruder 2 active, Set:

    Support Extruder => Extruder 1

    Support Interface Extruder => Extruder 1

    Build Plate Adhesion Extruder => Not Overriden

     

    3. Disable Extruder 1. 

     

    4. Slice the file and check the Comment in the start G-Code.
    It will incorrectly state ';The initial extruder is T0' even though that extruder is disabled. 

     

    5. Re-enable Extruder 1 and set:

    Support Extruder => Extruder 2

    Support Interface Extruder => Extruder 2

    Build Plate Adhesion Extruder => Extruder 2

     

    6. Disable Extruder 1

     

    7. Reslice the file and check the comment.

    It should now correctly read ';The initial extruder is T1'.

     

    8. Re-enable Extruder 1 and change the model to print from Extruder 1. Leave the following settings as:

    Support Extruder => Extruder 2

    Support Interface Extruder => Extruder 2

    Build Plate Adhesion Extruder => Extruder 2

     

    9. Disable Extruder 2

     

    10. Slice the file and check the comment. 

    It should correctly read ';The initial extruder is T0', even though we had set Extruder 2 to be used for the build plate ashesion and support.

     

     

     

    From some trial and error, it appears that Cura is silently changing the 'Support Extruder' and 'Build Plate Adhesion Extruder' settings to Extruder 1 when Extruder 2 is disabled (as in step 9).

    However, Cura is not automatically changing the 'Support Extruder' and 'Build Plate Adhesion Extruder' settings to Extruder 2 when Extruder 1 is disabled (as in Step 3).

     

     

    I have been using Steps 5-7 as a workaround to get my prints going, however this is not ideal as it is easy to miss, especially due to the fact that the settings for 'Support Extruder', 'Support Interface Extruder' and 'Build Plate Adhesion Extruder' are hidden when only 1 extruder is active.

     

    Kind regards

    Tom

      • 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
