Fri May 07, 2021 4:02 am


i have a printer with 3 extruders.

Simplify give me a list in " auto-configure extruder" like:
Extruder 1 Only
Extruder 2 Only
Extruder 3 Only
Extruders 1 and 2
Extruders 1, 2 and 3

i want to add a new list item in my auto-configure extruder.

something like:
Extruders 1 and 3
Extruders 2 and 3

That's a great question! Currently, you have a single way to accomplish this.
  • You'll need to export your profile as a FFF file. (File > Export FFF Profile)
  • Open the saved FFF file in your text editor of choice.
  • Scroll down to the very bottom and you'll find the xml formatted "autoconfigure extruders" sections.
  • Copy one of these and paste it after the existing autoconfigure extruders sections but before the closing profile xml tag.
  • Edit the pasted section to your liking.
    (You can repeat this process to create multiple new autoconfigure extruder sections.)
  • When you're done save the FFF file from your text editor and import back into Simplify3D. (File > Import FFF Profile)
