Can we get a profile for the Lulzbot Taz5 FlexyDually V2, please?

That's what you get for being an early adopter. :) Congrats, BTW.

So if you can't wait, start by loading the base dual extruder profile for the TAZ5 then start adding Material/Quality sub profiles.

LB's Cura stores the FlexyDually V2 profiles in:
On PC - C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_17.10\resources\quickprint\lulzbot_profiles\TAZ_flexystruder_v2\[filament_quality-or-speed].
On Mac - Should be a similar folder structure under Cura in the Application folder... sorry not on a Mac ATM, but will check later.

Load the S3D base dual extruder profile: Help-> Configuration Assistant->Lulzbot TAZ 5 Dual Extruder (.5mm nozzles)

Check the following Tool1 (Front Extruder) characteristics:
- Extruder - configure Front Extruder parameters
- nozzle diameter
- retraction settings
- tweak the multiplier after a few prints
- Other - configure the default print speed... will most likely be the slower plastic speed (ninjaflex).
- Layer - convert Cura's wall thickness to a multiple of your extrusion width

Once you have the Front Extruder hardware characteristics set, add new Material sub profile. Transfer "Temperature" (bed, T0 and T1) and "Cooling" tab info. Your new "Material" profile is stored... you may need to click "Update Profile" for the Process.

Lastly create a "Quality" profile for the new plastic. Store "layer height" and speed settings for the new plastic.


The attached FFF is for the Dual Extruder V2, but might serve as a base pr reference for the FlexyDually V2.

Hope that helps.

Thanks - I'll try to find some time to give that a try

My goal is to use a FlexyDually v2 print head, but use only the Flex extruder (front/E1).

I would like to load an STL model, choose Ninjaflex (or other) filament and hit "Print!"

I don't have experience with Cura profiles, but willing to learn if folks suggest it's the right approach to reach this goal..

Printing from just the front extruder is possible, but requires a dual extruder profile. Use the configuration editor to add the TAZ 5 with Dual Extruder. The newly created printer profile will have an option to print with "Both", "Front Only" or "Back Only" extruder next to the Material and Quality dropdown boxes.

To use the normal dual extruder profile for the Flexydually, modify the front extruder (T1) with the right nozzle diameter... .6mm for the FlexyDually. Keep T0 at .5mm. Setup a "Material" profile for Ninjaflex by clicking the green "+", then use the extrusion temps, cooling, bed, speed and retractions settings from Cura and/or Lulzbot.

Now you're ready to print the Ninjaflex. Load the STL, click on "Edit Process". Pick Ninjaflex for the "Material", and choose "Front Extruder Only". Tweak any other settings. Hit "Ok" at the main menu, click "Prepare to Print!"...

Hope that helps.

The FlexyDually v2 has been out a while, and I'm new to Simplify3D.

Does anyone have a FlexyDually v2 profile they're happy with and would like to share?
