    Hi Ganon! "Dual Nozzles"

    UM officially abanodoned "dual" printing for the UM2 family earlier this year.

    You CAN install two blocks, and drives, and print with two colours eventually, but you will run into at least two show-stopping problems:

    Dual problem 1: While you print with nozzle #1, nozzle #2 will continuously crash into your new construction. Fix: Lift the head not in use. There are some good efforts for this, especially in Germany I think. The guy is in the forum here..

    Dual problem 2: The head currently not in use will a) drip, and b) "cook" the material inside, and depending which material it is, turn i into "чевачка", completely blocking it.

    There are more problems also, but these are by most regarded as the most important ones.

    if i want to print support with my 2nd nozzle ?

    so, if i have a lot of support in the print, the material will not be "cooked"

    it could work ?

    DUAL: This is the simple way to keep the filament uncooked:

    Lets say you have a "main Print". This print needs filament from both nozzles.

    You add more work to the buildplate by making  1-4 "fake" prints next to the main print.

    We call these "wipe towers".

    It ensures, that ever now and then the nozzle (-s, if you dare) go print something unnecessary there, keeping the filament moving.

    But in DUAL printing there are other problems, so you just have to try!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.
