Felix 3.0, Dual extruder. Print with 2nd extruder issue

Post by olce »

Hi,

my setup :
Felix 3D 3.0, DUAL extruder setup
Firmware: 20141107 - FIRMWARE - Repetier 0.92 - FELIX_3_0_DUAL_extrusion
Repetier: RepetierHostFELIXPrinters 1.0.5

I finally was able to output some good prints using the first extruder (E0?)
I've loaded another color PLA into the 2nd extruder (E1)

So I just wanted to print something with that 2nd color, assuming it would be enough to :
- load an object
- assign extruder 2 to it
(just as the manual explains)
Leave other slicer settings default:
- CuraEngine
- Single Head Mode (because I'm only going to print with the 2nd extruder)
- speed, infill, filament.... all the same as my previous print

I start slicing, GCode generated as usual

When I press START
- nothing happens : none of the extruders are heating up, only the heatbed gets activated and heats up

After looking at the generated GCode, I see no references to E1 only to E0
but the first extruder does nothing either


Any ideas?


Thanks
