Limit nozzle wipe on prime tower at last nozzle change

Posted · Limit nozzle wipe on prime tower at last nozzle change

I am new to this, so I am not sure where the answer may be. But I noticed on a print I am doing right now that the nozzle goes to the prime tower at every layer whether it is changing nozzles or not. Got a bunch of layers on top of the supports, and nothing but one material left, but it still goes to the prime tower at every level. A big waste of time and filament.

Am I missing something? I did just download 2.4 beta...in there maybe?

    Along the same line of thought, is there a way to stop printing the priming tower in Cura 2.X on the UM3 at a specified layer? For instance I would like to stop printing the priming tower at say layer 30 of a particular model because there is no need for additional support, nor the tower, above that point where the support ends when support is set to "touching build plate" Printing the tower all the way to the top of the part often doubles the build time, and needlessly wastes PLA build material.

    cura 2.4beta I believe now (finally) stops printing with the PVA nozzle once you are above all needed support. Does that help? Also you can play with the support "angle" and reduce the support on your particular model that way.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
