Not sure why Cura (and btw S3D as well) generates this support on top of the wings. But at least we now know that Polysupport bonds very well to PLA.

S3D does that with thin stuff. Try lowering the horizontal expansion (orsomething likethat mm) I don't have a computer here but if you lower that it will not generate supports that go beyond the limits of the object.

Edit: Found it. It's called Extra inflation distance

    Wow quite clean for something that thin! I might put that polymax stuff on my shopping list. Also that flexible that @DidierKlein linked looks very sexy for the colors and specially because it's eco-friendly (and goes up to 102C).

    Polysupport is really super-easy to print with.

    The tip of the helix is 1.0 mm in diameter. Cura 2.1.2 with 0.15 mm layer.

    If there's any possibility to reach all the support structures for (easy) removal this will be my first choice from now on.

    @foehnsturm does the changer firmware support a +feeder and an old feeder combination already? Or do we need to set e-steps every change?

     

    Afaik a gcode for setting e-steps would be required with every tool change at the moment. But I pass this to @Tinkergnome ;)

    I agree, using a different, probably already existing feeder is a nice option especially for tinkerers. However, professional users will most likely want to run identical drive trains.

    I was thinking of people using there old head and feeder after the + upgrade.....

    That's what I had in mind as well.

    The only think that worries me about 2 esteps it's that Marlin has a bug (at least on all umo/umo+) that was never fixed. And it kicks in as soon you change esteps and move the motor.

    Basically everytime you change the esteps the first next move of the feeder will be absolutely 'nuts'. Also @Dim3nsioneer saw this bug in person

    Ok, don't want to put too much stress on Tinkergnome. (But he should be well rested anyway :p )

    I print only two weeks Dual, could see no error. What should I look?

    It's only a suspicion a.t.m., but i think the M92 confuses the planner and a subsequent G92 is the correct 'workaround'. Good work! :)

    First test with HD Glass ( PETG) and Recreus FilaFlex.

    FilaFlex on a Machtless block with 0.6 mm race nozzle @ 30 mm/s, 0.15 mm layer height

    Not that bad. Considered it's FilaFlex, toolchange retractions worked surprisingly well.

    30mm/s on a race nozzle???

    Well, most people fail completely to print the super-soft FilaFlex with the bowden setup.

    I'm sure I could go considerably faster but I want to keep temperature as low as possible cause dual extrusion needs working retraction.

    Yes it's a very good result.

    It just sounds funny to be using a race nozzle at 30mm/s.
