Hopefully this isn't too vague, but I have a question I just can't figure out:
We're in the midst of possibly designing a new printer. I can't give too many of the details away except that its somewhat like an "IDEX" printer where different extruders will print different parts of a print.
Now I understand how to split an .stl into two and assign extruders to each area. I have a Prusa with an MMU on it and I also have access to a J750 that does something similar. I've split things in Blender and imported them as assemblies of stl's, where each stl is assigned a material. My question is more like:
-If I wanted to split a part by location and assign extruders, and I wanted to do this quickly in a slicing software (instead of in a cad software prior to getting into the slicing software), is this possible? Is there a software (Cura/PrusaSlicer/something else) that already does this? I.e. the 'right-most' part of the print will be one extruder, the 'left-most' will be another. Something like this:
P.s. I know in PrusaSlicer you can "paint" where a material will be, but this would be more of a "chop"
