Posted · Help with "Load Dual"

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.

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
