I am using the SKR PRO board on a dual extruder 3D printer. I have tried Curaengine and Slic3r in Repetier-host. The printer firmware is handling the offset fine (it prints in the right spot for extruder 2 when it switches extruders) but it won't extrude any filament. When I type in T1 and manually extrude with the buttons in reetier-host it extrudes just fine. I have let it go for several layers without seeing any extrusion from the 2nd extruder. The main extruder works fine and doesn't extrude while the 2nd one is selected. Here is some of the g-code from curaengine slicing the dual extruder calibration cube.

Turns out that the Left and Right extruders turn the opposite direction so once I inverted E1 in marlin it is working fine.

  • $\begingroup$ Note that this is dependant on how the hotends and extruders are mounted. To this extent, it would have helped to show a photo of the extruders - glad you managed to figure it out yourself. $\endgroup$ – Trish Mar 8 '20 at 9:23
