When using a dual extrusion printer it is important to calibrate the distance between the nozzles in X and Y direction. A properly calibrated printer will produce parts without a visible shift between sections printed with the left and the right extruder. In this article I wil discuss the use of a calibration program to find the offset between the nozzles on the Flashforge Dreamer.
As anyone who owns a 3D printer knows, it may take some of trial and error to obtain good print results. This is especially the case for dual material prints. The Flashforge Dreamer supports dual material printing out of the box. However, I have noticed it can be hard to print parts without color mixing due to oozing extruders that wipe themselves clean on the edges of the part. In this article I will describe a method to use dual extrusion with Slic3r, which significantly improves print quality.
