5 extruders?

Recommended Posts

Hello Daid,

First off I want to thank you for your hard work on Cura. I am stunned at both the ease of use and the speed/quality of the output as compared with my former combo (Slic3r + Pronterface). I am still occasionally exporting G-Code and printing with Pronterface to have more manual control during the print, but this is starting to go away.

One small feature request: the RoVa3D (aka ORD MH3000) on which I am printing has 5 print heads. Would it be possible to increase the max # of extruders you support to 5? Another request would be to support more per-extruder parameters, e.g. setting different retract parameters, flow%, and nominating specific nozzles for support material selection. That said, I'm still not yet printing regularly with more than 4, so I am probably going to use Cura for a while to come.

Thank you again for all your hard work!

Hello Daid and CreativeWolf,

I also have the same printer as CreativeWolf, the RoVa3D with 5 nozzels. I have been trying to optimize the printer and a couple days ago I resigned to Cura instead of Slic3r + pronterface. In the newest version of Cura, 15.04.4, I can select that my printer has 5 nozzels, but as soon as I try to do that Cura feezes. The max amount of nozzels I can get to work are 4 and that works without a problem.

Do you know if there is a way to get all the 5 nozzels to work?

Kind regards,

Roman van der Rijt

    • "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.
