Re: Dual V3 Head Not Ready for Prime Time

For the loading, I have found that if you gently bend the last 8" or so of filament so that you reverse the natural curl (so that the curl aligns with the tool head path to the hot end), cut the tip at an angle (as they suggest), and walk the filament in with the tensioner released and the screw bac...

Re: Disable Dual Extrusion CURA 2.6.69

I really liked the custom material profile workaround idea. I tried this tonight by creating a profile called OFF and setting all the material settings to 0 and temps to 0C. I then created a gcode file using some random filament in extruder 2, then another gcode file with my custom 'OFF' profile to ...

Re: Dual V3 Head Not Ready for Prime Time

I would just like to mention that the dual v3 unit i received about a month ago was finally installed last weekend and has worked great so far with the current FW available in Cura 2.6.69 (which I believe is 1.1.5.71). After calibrating the Z-offset, I was able to print the Impossible Gears demo wit...

Re: Disable Dual Extrusion CURA 2.6.69

Well, I got Cura to generate a gcode file that controlled the printer as I wanted using only E1 (T0). It required commenting out all the commands for E2 (T1) in the Start Gecode block and End Gcode block. Yuck. Did I just figure out the most inconvenient way of doing this? Or is there a better option?

Re: Disable Dual Extrusion CURA 2.6.69

So, I noticed that no matter how many extruders I select in the "Number of Extruders" dropdown, the "Start Gcode" block always has references to T0 and T1: M104 S{material_soften_temperature_0} T0 ; soften filament M104 S{material_soften_temperature_1} T1 ; soften filament M140 S{material_bed_temper...

Re: Disable Dual Extrusion CURA 2.6.69

So maybe Im still missing something... I set the settings to 1 extruder. The Cura GUI changed such that only one extruder was available for manipulation and the slicer re-generated the gcode. I moved the gcode to my printer host (octoprint) and loaded it. It still activated the second extruder durin...

Re: Disable Dual Extrusion CURA 2.6.69

Thanks for the reply. So when I tell Cura there is 1 extruder, it still knows that the Dual v3 is actually installed and doesnt change any of the offsets, limits, or autobed leveling gcode, correct? I know it uses the left extruder to zero on the left bed washers and the right extruder to zero on th...

Disable Dual Extrusion CURA 2.6.69

I just installed and tuned my Dual extruder V3 and printed the test print successfully. I wanted to print a part out using only one extruder, but cannot figure out how to tell CURA to disable the second extruder. Yes, I realize I can swap back to the single extruder and flash the proper firmware and...

Re: Dual Extruder v3

UGH! That's the WORST! Did the print just break adhesion? Or was it a problem with the extruder? I just got mine tonight and will probably set it up in the next few days. I had a 20 hr print that was about 45 min from completion break adhesion with the single extruder. I tried for a while to break t...

I think this was the page I used to adjust my config:

Focus attention to the USB Webcam section. :D
