Specific question to get dual extrusion running on UM2

Posted · Specific question to get dual extrusion running on UM2

Hi Folks,

lets say it might be possible to bulid in a second nozzle etc. to the UM2 letting the heat problem aside.

What would I have to do to get the machine running with the second extruder?

I see that Cura allows me to set the number of extruders to 2. Ok done.

But now? What do I have to do to lett the UM2 that it has a 2nd extruder mounted?

I connect second heat pill, second thermal sensor for nozzle temperature and 2nd stepper motor.

Result of first try is (of course) that nothing happens. I cannot control the devices related to the 2nd extruder.

I understand that I have to change some settings, jumpers, Firmware version, whatever.

What would be the way to do it for some tests?

thanky

nudel

    Hi Nudel,

    I don't think no one is into getting deeper in dual extrusion. Many, including myself, want it.

    You can see here a thread with 11 pages of comments on the subject.

    http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/3803-ultimaker-2-dual-extrusion/

    People are just focusing on other things while Ultimaker is deep into the subject. Its no simple task and many have been proposing ideas.

    Cheers
