Second Extruder Issues
This topic may be a bridge between Repetier Host and Repetier Firmware... Im not 100% sure yet.
So, I have upgraded my FolgerTech Cloner to a E3D Chimera dual extruder. I have PID auto tuned BOTH hotends, and updated the firmware and host to reflect the addition of the Chimera and the PID settings. In the firmware both extruders are ALMOST identical except for how its wire up, as in the ports its connected to on the RAMPS board.
Here is my issue.
When I print with extruder #1, it prints very well. It needs some very very minor tweaks, but it prints well. When I TRY to print with extruder #2, it heats the bed only to 50c, it doesn't heat the hotend, and goes about its day as if it IS printing. No extrusion or anything happening. My slicer (Cura) has only one print settings, and one filament settings. Both are set to default, and when I click "Slice with Cura" those settings are selected.
Is there something I am missing?
On a side note, when I print using the octopi server, I can get the #2 to heat up, but its not extruding properly and jams. I have tried an E3D v5, E3D v6, and Now the Chimera, and I get the same results with #2. There has to be a problem with my setup of the firmware or something.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
