Posted · Is it possible to return to a layer height in cura after running a nozzle change?

So here's the thing, I'm trying to print with 2 extruders and one nozzle. I already got close and uploaded my progress to thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1494026 but now i'm trying to get cura to wipe the nozzle off after purging out the old color. the problem is that if I move the z axis to 0 it won't move back to the height of the current layer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

this is the code I have so far

 

;Switch between the current extruder and the next extruder, when printing with multiple extruders.;This code is added before the T(n)G91                                    ;relative positioningG1 E-1 F6000                            ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure;G1 Z+0.5 X-20 Y-20 F{travel_speed} ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even moreG90                         ;absolute positioningG1 X221G1 Z0G92 E0G1 F10000 E-155G92 E0

The brackets after z is where the issue is.
