Hey guys,

Is it possible to select in cura which extuder is doing which bit of the model? I was printing in two different materials last night, and I wanted the lower part to be flex pla, and the top the regular PLA, however it came out the other way around.

How can I reverse it?

Thanks

    Hi!

    As far as I know it depens on the order you load the files into cura. You should see the two parts after merging in two colors.

    Take a look into the preferences - you should ba able to identify which part is printed from which nozzle and start playing with the loading order.
