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.

Thank you @ghostkeeper for explaining/showing it. 

Am I right to assume/say that this wipe is of no use for an UM3 as the other nozzle is lifted out of the way ?

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.

Indeed, I believe the Ultimaker 3 has it disabled for most materials (like PLA) but enabled for the more flexible materials like PP which ooze a lot during stand-by.
