Switching between extruders (DUAL)

Recommended Posts

AFAIK there is no custom extruder swap gcode in Cura up to now. But the behaviour you describe might be implemented in Cura in future, when the new GUI is released.

I guess (from the way your question is asked) you know Slic3r; there you have the extruder swap gcode.

You can most certainly do this from a plugin (just search for the T0 and T1 and add your own pre/post codes there)

In the future I'm planning to support this in the machine configuration of the new GUI. (holy shit, this new GUI is a lot of work. It's finally starting to get some shape. But the whole machine configuration dialogs are missing at the moment)

But you would have to hard-code the swap code into the plugin...there is no alphanumeric input up to now...right?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
