Feature Request: Number of Extruders

Postby bametalman » Mon Mar 15, 2021 4:02 pm

Will Ideamaker ever have more than just 2 extruders? Ideamaker is a great slicer, and as more and more printers are coming out or being modified with more than 2 extruders, Ideamaker will be left behind. I think Ideamaker will gain even more popularity with the capablity to handle more extruders (minimum of 8). Would it be possible to have this added?

Excellent. Thanks for the reply.

Do you happen to know how many extruders they're planning to have?

Vicky, is there any update on when this release will happen? I checked the last release and there was no mention of the increase in extruders in the notes. Thanks

We kinda figure it out but still a lot tests to make sure the big change wont affect other features in ideaMaker. We are planning to release it in Q2.
