Dual Nozzle Dual Profile?

Fri Jun 28, 2019 4:36 am

Hi, don't have Simplify 3D yet but wondering how it handles dual extruders on the Raise3D Pro2. IdeaMaker does a terrible job of having left and right nozzle profiles for example different materials in each and different nozzles.

Does Simplify allow each nozzle to have individual settings like Speed, Retraction, Cooling, Nozzle Width, Extrusion Multiplier etc..

I'd like to have a couple of profiles for say left nozzle PLA, right nozzle PETG. Both need different speeds and retraction etc. I'd also like left nozzle to be 0.4mm and the right to be 0.8mm.

They may have the same material in but one used for bulk printing and the other fine detail. Again I would want say have an 0.8mm PETG profile and a 0.4mm PETG profile and then assign them to a nozzle and say which bits of a model to print with which nozzle or on a multipart print have one part done with the big nozzle and the other done with the small nozzle.

This will have impact with say layer height as the big nozzle might be 0.4mm layers and the 0.4mm nozzle might be 0.2mm layers?

Can Simplify handle this?
