No, I do not switch tool heads in a single job. I determine ahead of time which tool head would be appropriate for each print job and then slice and print the job with the appropriate tool head. It might be possible to have two different sized nozzles in a dual extruder tool head, but I've not done it.
Multiple layer heights within a single print can be done in some slicers. In CuraLE, "Use adaptive layers" is supposed to do this automagically. Simplify3D has the ability to do multiple "processes" in the same print job and for each process, you can specify begining and ending layer numbers or Z height and the layer height can be different in each process. Slic3r also has the ability to do this but I haven't used Slic3r very much.JoeBowler300 wrote: ↑Mon Sep 03, 2018 9:04 pmI am interested to know more about this technique ; I printed some molds and the fine details were on the top and I could’ve used the larger nozzle size to build up the base quicker. Along the same lines of this, is there a way to have multiple layer heights within a print? I tried using the “Use adaptive layers” setting in the Experimental section but the results didn’t turn out too good for me. I would like to control the layer height throughout various points in the model.
