I am using Cura and have 2 extruders set up. I m trying to us the Load Dual to use the two extruders together, but when I load my two files one is part inside of the other part. is there away to move the files around including up and down, if I wanted to print a part on top of the other or next to each other, how would I do this?

    The part you load first will be printed with the primary extruder (the brown part), the green part will be printed with the secondary extruder.

    The positioning in RC4 is bugged:

    You should slice and check if the result is good, because slicing still gives the correct GCode even if the preview of the 3D model is wrong.

    Note that dual head printing is experimental in Cura, and that you have to setup to heat both extruders yourself, as Cura does not do that yet.
