Re: Dual Extrusion - Clean Prints - No Ooze

Update: I just completed a 13 hr print with the above settings. I did not use a prime tower and let the Extruder End Gcode keep the head parked over the print while blasting the fans the the appropriate temperature. My print came out nearly flawless. There was no oozing at all, even after the 4 init...

Re: Dual Extrusion - Clean Prints - No Ooze

I appreciate the feedback. I have been playing with temps and retractions to eliminate the need for a prime tower. I use much more expensive 3D printers at work (Stratasys uPrint SE) and they have a prime bucket and wire brush (with rubber wiper) station that the head parks at while switching hot en...

Interface layer Floor Missing?

I am playing with the interface floor and roof features and noticed something that I don't understand. It seems that under certain conditions, the interface floor does not get printed. Is there a setting that needs to be adjusted? I believe it is due to the aggressive angle of the model at the locat...

Dual Extrusion - Clean Prints - No Ooze

I have been diving into the world of dual extrusion on my Taz 6 with Dual v3 tool head. My primary function is to be able to print with support material. I have found that eSun PLA Pro is a very solid filament and prints great in the Taz. Also, PolySupport material is very compatible with PLA Pro. I...

Re: Wipe and Prime Tower Filament Order

I am running into the same issue. I think this might be a bug caused by an ordering mishap and the behavior changes by changing the Build Plate Adhesion Type... I have a part setup to use interface support layers with PLA model material in E1 and support material in E2. This prints all the support l...

Re: Polydissolve S1 - Total Bust

Thanks for the reply. Here are some photos: This is how the filament broke when I first got it. 2016_1215_234100_001.JPG 2016_1215_234134_002.JPG Notice that there are no strain marks. It just snapped. I have noticed that as I use more material in my tests, its getting better, where I can bend it 18...

Polydissolve S1 - Total Bust

I cant figure out what I am doing wrong... I bought a (very expensive) roll of Polydissolve S1 and have been trying to get it to work with my prints. I am using eSun PLA+ and experimenting with the Support Interface feature in Cura (using 3.2.27). I have tried a wide range of temperatures and feed r...

Re: Cura 3.2.23+ Extruder Count Bug?

Another update... Ok devs... now I'm really confused. After reinstalling 3.2.27, I am generating gcode without the T1 commands just like I did in 3.2.21..... I am at a loss as to why it is working as I expect now. In all cases, I performed a clean installation with previous files cleared out as inst...

Re: Cura 3.2.23+ Extruder Count Bug?

I have confirmed that setting the number of extruders from 2 to 1 in 3.2.21 also causes the program to experience the unhanded exception. Also, after re-reading the release notes, the added T1 commands may be due to the following note under Bug Fixes: - Fixed TAZ 6 start gcode which was ignoring ini...

Cura 3.2.23+ Extruder Count Bug?

I upgraded to Cura 3.2.23 today and set up my machine. I have a TAZ6 with v3 dual extruder. Previously in 3.2.21, I had two machine profiles defined. Both were TAZ6 with V3 Dual Extruder profiles, however, one of the profiles was named "LULZBOT TAZ6 DualExtruderv3 (T0 ONLY)" and had the gcode start ...
