Support for 3 extruders

Mon Jul 27, 2015 10:15 am

I have purchased the Diamond Hotend which can be seen here http://reprap.org/wiki/Diamond_Hotend
This has three filaments going into one nozzle (basically 3 extruders) They provide information on how to use in SLIC3R AND CURA.
As a customer I would like to see this supported in the near future by Simplify.

Thanks.

Pretty sure S3D already supports up to 6 extruders. Just use the "Add Extruder" button to add the extra nozzles into your FFF profile.

If you have other issues, you might want to try contacting their support staff: https://www.simplify3d.com/contact/

This is a MUST have feature.

It's not good when a quite expensive slicer does not have this feature, and many free tools does.

The software already supports 3 extruders. I use it all the time with a triple head machine I have. From the post above, you can see that is actually supports up to 6 extruders.
