On the page forums I linked you there's info about it but since you are lazy :p

Example of toolchange script:

{IF NEWTOOL=0}T0 (Forces T0 so the X/Y coordinates are 0/0)

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G0 F10000 X6 ;Moves near the 0

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G28 X0 ; Home X yo be sure that the X stays align. You can remove this after you do some checks that this X/Y data fits your setup.

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G0 F10000 X6 Y50 ; Prepare to Park 1 on Left Hangar

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G0 F10000 X6 Y0 ; Park 0 on Left hangar

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G28 Y0

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G0 F10000 X176.8 Y5 ; Go Kiss Extruder 0 on Right Hangar

{IF NEWTOOL=0}G0 F10000 X176.8 Y50 ; Extruder 0 ready

{IF NEWTOOL=1}T0 (Forces T0 so the X/Y coordinates are 0/0)

{IF NEWTOOL=1}G0 F10000 X176.8 Y50 ; Prepare to park 0 on Right

{IF NEWTOOL=1}G0 F10000 X176.8 Y0 ; So long a thanks for all the fish. {IF NEWTOOL=1}G28 Y0

{IF NEWTOOL=1}G0 F10000 X6 Y5 ; Searching Extruder 1 on Left Hangar {IF NEWTOOL=1}G0 F10000 X6 Y50 ; Extruder 1 ready

{IF NEWTOOL=1}G28 X0

    Lol, someone did notice that after 30 pages XD!!

    I have change that loading-unloading sequence lately (to help with the head/park so they don't hit each other and has more margin of error) to:

    G0 F8000 X5.8 Y50 ; Prepare to Park 1 on Left Hangar

    G0 F8000 X5.8 Y0 ; Park 0 on Left hangar

    G0 F8000 X176.8 Y7 ; Go Kiss Extruder 0 on Right Hangar

    G0 F8000 X176.8 Y50 ; Extruder 0 ready

    T0 ;CHANGED

    G0 F8000 X177 Y50 ; Prepare to park 0 on Right

    G0 F8000 X177 Y0 ; So long a thanks for all the fish.

    G0 F8000 X6 Y7 ; Searching Extruder 1 on Left Hangar

    G0 F8000 X6 Y50 ; Extruder 1 ready

    T1 ;CHANGED

    Now Y7 makes the head to avoid hitting the parked ones and does sweet no-hitting great-repeatability head changes.

    Also if someone it's planning to do this, please drop me a pm so I send him the updated head/center clamp. They are much better now and it has a 0.02-0.03 error on the bearings area that has made after 2 months of use that the central head 'shakes' a bit. Tolerances...

    So what teh problem I am having now is that when the second extruder starts up it is printing in the wrong place... (exactly 18mm offset on the x) the exact distance between the two tool heads... so what I am assuming is that I need to have is a tool change script that says that (if tool change true go to current x(value) - 18 mm...

    does the firmware have the intelligence to know current location?

    Simplify let's you define each process 'offset'. So you can fix that by soft

    image.thumb.jpg.4ef8629186812533eaa9e52af15ea372.jpg

    Also there's a gcode to set the offset to the printer. Check on marlin about it

    It looks a little funky when it gets to the prep to print stage but it appears to work.

    Heres a picture as requested of the test layer. Not bad for smear/drip.

    It's hard to seemon the photo being silver and the table ¿glue? But if it works clean then please share.

    Yes it is silver filament, coming from the 1.6 mm head and the green (support) coming from the .4 mm there is definitely glue on the bed because I have found that even at temps in the upwards of 240C the pla has a hard time adhering to the bulidplate. the glue is hot water washable which makes it easy to remove the part when finished because simply running it under hot water will release the glue's hold.

    Still refining settings, Don't want to go through with the complete build until the print quality is close to perfect. I can usually tell what settings need to be changes within the first 10 layers.
