Printer with independent heads - IDEX

Post by olo2000pm » 17 Nov 2018, 03:16

Hey.
I've been building printers for several years.
I am using a free kisslicer.
Now I am building an IDEX printer and can kisslicer pro work with such a printer?
I am using the translator.
Sorry for the mistakes.
Here is the link to my project: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3101618

Honest answer is that I don't know.

But if KISS generates G-code which will work with one tool and then editing the G-code to select the other tool and it still works as expected, then you should be able to generate G-code for using both tools with the PRO version.

You may need to add some G-code for parking the old tool before a new tool is selected. Thinking about it, you would probably need to park the tools in different positions; not sure how I would do that.

Unfortunately, I really don't know enough about the printer. Sorry :(
