Hello,

I would like to print in dual extrusion mode with PLA in extruder #1 and Flexible PLA in extruder #2. But the two materials require different parameters (slow print speed and no retraction for flexible PLA).

Is there any option in Cura to have fully independent settings for each extruder ?

May be that can be done with a custom plugin ?

Frederic.

    At the moment the only truly extruder independent setting in Cura is the temperature setting. This might change

    - with the new GUI to come

    - with the introduction of an UM2 dual extruder.

    Or it might not. Cura is not supposed to offer equally detailed options such as e.g. Slic3r.

    A plugin could do the job. Please feel free to write one and to share it if you like... :-)

    Stay tuned.
