Feature request: Right click to select extruder

Recommended Posts

I am very thankful for the "Select Extruder" plugin for single-nozzle prints from Dim3nsioneer.

It'd be even better if I could right click on an object in the platform and select which nozzle I'd like to print from there.

I know that I can click 2 objects that are intended to be overlaid on each other and merge them to print on a 2-nozzle setup, but for 3+ nozzles, there's no easy way to pick the nozzle that I want for each item.

Is this possible? If I understood the code better, I'd offer to write it myself, but...

Can someone tell me where to get the SelectExtrude plugin and how to download it?  I went to GitHub and I do not see where to download the py file.  

Can someone just send me the file or post it on Ultimaker so it can be easily downloaded?




Well, the 'download here' on the Wiki page is not that extremely hard to find, isn't it? ;)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
