Right extruder slice appears to invert model?

Postby red » Tue Jan 22, 2019 8:22 pm

Hey folks, I have recently procured a Pro2 and was hoping someone could suggest why this is happening.

I slice with right-click "left extruder" selected and the slicer preview shows it good to go. When I slice with the "right extruder" the previewed mesh seems to have inverted and then desperately tied to close the surface, giving me a mess.

This is sliced using Standard Pro2 PLA, with the Right Extruder enabled in the Advanced settings.

Am I missing step? Thanks!

You need to go to the tab including Raft settings in Advanced Settings to set Raft Nozzle to be right nozzle.

I think that's the Wipe Wall you are seeing.

Hey, thank you for the replies. Unfortunately, I'm still have an issue.

When I set the raft to the right extruder I still get a bad mesh:

When I select everything to print via the right extruder I get this:

Thank you Noren, I believe you are exactly right! I had not used the layers slider within the preview and hadn't seen that the underlying mesh was just fine. I am new to FFF and wasn't aware of wipe walls. Thank you again.

Looks that the support generated is printed by left nozzle. You need to change the support nozzle to right as Raft nozzle.
