Using both extruders for one part

Postby bioeng » Mon Jun 18, 2018 4:17 pm

We're currently trying to print a part that will take more than one reel of filament. We tried setting up one extruder for the support material, but then it ended up adding even more material required for the print when we went to slice than when we used the regular setting with the automatic support material settings.

So my question is, how do you set up both extruders for the printing of one part without causing the printer to use more material than it normally would when only using one extruder? If not by using one for support material, is there a way to set up the printer to automatically switch to the 2nd extruder when it runs out of filament for the first?

Thanks in advance for your help!
