Simplify3d Major Bug with dual extrusion

Post by Legion 2.3 »

Hello folks

I bought Simplify3d a few days ago and did some nice prints with it, so i started to print with 2 extruders. The first print was successful, but ONLY the first print.

Now, everytime i use multiple processes, the G-Code is buggy: If i have 2 STLs of 1 object and assign the 2 processes to the two STLs (1 for each), the first 2 layers print as expected, but then, the whole of the next layers are printed with the same extruder (ex1). Even if i seperate the 2 STLs from each other (they´re not touching in the preview), the same happens.

Another strange thing is: Even if I assing both processes to extruder 0, only the first 2 layers are printed with this extruder, the next ones are printed with ex1. The only workarround is to delete the 2nd extruder, but then, I can´t print with 2 materials.

I´m currently using a customized .fff - profile with some addition G-code for the beginning and the end of the print, but nothing for the tool-change.
I´ve already tried the predefined Felix 3.0 single - profile and just changed the extruder toolhead index for the 2nd process to 1, but it´s not any better.

S3d just seems to "forget" to include the tool change code in the G-code or randomly adds this code.

As mentioned above, it worked one time.

Any ideas?
