Anyway to default to the right extruder?

Postby JimFouch » Tue Jan 09, 2018 12:04 pm

I'm using the latest official version 2.6.0.925.

I have a dual extruder N2. There are times that I'm only using the right extruder, but when I import an object it always defaults to the left extruder. If I don't manually change to the right extruder, it's difficult to make the change after doing any other operations. I seem to have trouble getting to the area where it lets you chose which extruder.

Is there a way to default all new objects to use the right extruder?

At the moment, the quick way to default to the right extruder is to upload the model, select "View" in the icon bar and select the model. This will give you the option of selecting the model as a left or right hotend model. Once this is done you will need to change the support and raft settings in the advanced menu of the slice template if you want to default everything to the right side.

Thank you. That works for now.
