    When setting the nozzle size for each of the 4 extruders - do I paste in the start and end GCode for each?

    Hey John, that's exactly right, you would copy and paste the start and end GCode for each extruder.

     

    Edit: My apologies, as this is incorrect, you would only have the start and end GCode in the printer tab. Please leave the start and end GCode empty for all extruders

    I have my Robo R2 set up with 4 extruders as outlined above. What if I am printing a 2-Color, or 3-Color piece? Do I need to set up another printer that has only 2, or 3 extruders? Or, do I print using the 4 extruder printer and only load and use the proper number of colors for my project?

    You would just print using the 4 extruder printer profile and only load and assign the necessary STLs into Cura.

    Hello there. I just read the article and it was helpful! 

    I'm just starting to experiment whit the palette and chroma software and i have a few questions.

    I'm using a flash forge finder and cura 17. I slice my model following the instructions in the article and everything is fine until I upload the model to chroma which doesn't seem to be able to determine the "transition information" and throws an error before stopping. I don’t know what to do about it.

    P.D: since cure doesn’t have a preloaded finder profile I had to make mi own as a custom FMD printer.

    Hey Silvio, thanks for the kind words! Could you please send your GCode and Cura Profile (.ini) to review to jonny@mosaicmanufacturing.com

    Question about configuring print settings in Cura for multiple extruders. Do you have to go through the settings for each extruder and make sure they are the same? Things like perimeter count, infill type, etc etc can all be set per extruder. Are all those settings honored or does it only use the settings from the first extruder? And if they don't have to match, does that mean we can customize sections of the model with different settings? Will that screw up Chroma and it's synchronization planning?

    Hey Jason, if you're making duplicate profiles, it should automatically share all those settings. The aim is to have all extruders share the settings as any changes could cause errors when processing in Chroma.
