Wipe inavtive Nozzle

Recommended Posts

Just recently I stumbled across this Cura feature called "Wipe Inactive Nozzle on Prime Tower"

Thought it sounded quite useful and activated it, but it seems like it doesn't do anything :/ ?!

Still seems to work fine. Here's how it works:

As you can see, it moves the nozzle to the side of the prime tower, which is supposed to wipe the stand-by nozzle off.

Well, no. Depending on the material it might ooze that much the ooze length is longer than the z offset. And then it leaves that trail on the tower and not on the print itself.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
