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.
