Dual extruder lesson learned

Post by kerog »

I don't know why this didn't occur to me a long time ago, so I'm thinking it may not have occurred to some other people.

When making multiples of the same object, if you just copy in Repetier Host it puts them side by side on the X axis by default. That results in the second head traversing the object on the right when the printer is working on the object by the left. Admittedly, this is affected by the size of the objects you are printing, but perhaps it is better in general to print multiple objects side by side on the Y axis.
