M221 and Advanced Ditto Printing
M221 used with Ditto Printing
This question is for advanced Ditto Printing.
I am involved with a manufacturing start up for small 3D printed pieces.
We have a part that has tight tolerances for the parts to work and fit correctly.
We use 3 different filament PLA colors, on one printer, printing 3 parts at one time in Ditto Printing, using Simplify 3D as the slicer.
Simplify 3D allows for separate Extrusion Multipliers for each extruder, but Repetier only uses settings for T0 and ignores Extrusion Multiplier settings for T1 and T2.
I tried to use M221 in all of its configurations to separate each individual extruder, but it only uses all the settings from a single setting, the last M221 in the command line.
Question: is there a way to address each individual extruders, Extrusion Multiplier?
The reason for this separation, is to have each extruder head to be independent from each other. This allows different Density Filaments to be printed at the same time on the same printer.
The only other way, at this moment is to change the extruders steps per each different filament. This is not a logical solution for commercial printing configurations.
