Specify Right to Left or Left to Right printing

Postby Polarbehr » Sat Oct 20, 2018 10:18 pm

I have an N2+ Dual. I'm printing a model that is using both nozzles. The left nozzle is printing the base plate and the right nozzle is printing text. When the right nozzle is printing the left is over top just previously printed text and it's causing that text to deform whether from heat or dragging.

Currently when printing the text the assembly moves left to right. I need it to move right to left to prevent the nozzle from dragging. Is this possible or is there something else I can do / change to get better results.

Thank You

Not sure if there is a way to do this since I don't have a dual extruder, but the first thing I would try is to rotate the model 180 degrees in Ideamaker and try or preview the print to see if it effectively reverses the direction for you.

Cool the unused nozzle. It has two benefits. Cooled nozzle contracts a teeny tiny bit and helps it ride above the material. It won't ooze and excess heat won't mar the print as easily.
