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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
