A simple way to change the travel speed at a tool change?

Posted · A simple way to change the travel speed at a tool change?

So I have a random curiosity.

Does anyone know if there is a way to slow the travel speed, after a tool change action occurs?

Or more specifically an option in the software that I can choose to set a speed of travel if a specific tool is the active one.

Reasoning: One head is a .4mm nozzle and the other is a 1.6mm nozzle, I want the travel when the 1.6mm is active to be about 75% of the speed of the .4mm.

Hardware: Um2 Dual

Software: Cura and Simplify3D

In simplify3d it's easy when you put the use of the 2 nozzles in separate processes, meaning you basically can set every setting per nozzle.

New cura : no dual extrusion atm.

Old cura: don't think you can unless you make a custom plug in.
