I've used the new Stratos software and it doesn't shows the duplicated models.

The extruder 2 is disabled. It is working? how can I run the duplication mode correctly?

Hello Carina,

 

At the moment exist a bug with the preview of the duplicated or mirrored models with the duplication and mirror mode. However, these modes are working correctly. Remember to place all the models in the light gray area.

To use these modes you can follow the next steps:

Trought the IDEX button:

1. Select the model clicking on it.

2. Click on the IDEX button.

3. Select the 4th or the 5th mode. The 4th is duplication mode, the 5th is mirror mode.

 

Trought the printing settings:

1. Go to custom configuration.

2. Open the dual extrusion settings.

3. In the print mode select the mode that you want. 

 

The extruder 2 is disabled because all the parameters are shared by the extruder 1, you only need to configure this extruder to print. 

 

Once you have sliced the models, you will see in the g-code (you can open it using a note block) the instruction M605 SX (X could be 5 or 6) Enable duplication/mirror mode.

 

We're working to solve this issue, best regards

Hi

Ive made it as you say. But my W50 then prints with the second extruder on the place where the first one should print. The first Extruder prints outside of the printbed...

Can you fix this not so trivial Bug ASAP please.

Thanks

Does this make sense if you use different filaments? I mean even if you use two sorts of eg PET-G the temperature on the hotend might be different. I think there should be an option in Stratos to handle this. What do you say BCN?

I agree. I had the same Problem. The one filament on the second extruder needs flow to 105% for better results as

well it needs 5C more than the one in left extruder. Therfore i would like to set different settings per extruder, as well in copy and mirror mode.

I also would like if the settings for each extruder are more clearly uncoupled, for example: I think it would be better if the software does not choose the second extruder for support until i clearly say so. This destroyed one extruder once as i have printed PET and the second had PLA but thought its pet as well and used it as support. The PLA then cooked and messed up the Extruder.

- Then, in duplication mode, „Draftshield“ leads to a massive BUG where the printer makes strange things after the first Layer. I had to flash the printer and go back to the cura software to get finished printresults again.

Its clearly the draftshield that causes the bug. As it does not occur when disabled???
