Tool Change Location

Recommended Posts

I'm super happy to see that CURA waits for the nozzles to get to temperature unlike certain competitors.

 

However this is happening right on the part! Could we do these temperature changes over the purge tower, instead of doing them on the part, then moving to the purge tower immediately following?

 

Or, is there some way to do this (or at least Z-lift during temp changes)?

Could we add a tool change script that moves to that position, manually, at the beginning of each tool change? Would that happen before the temperature set?

I added a (manual, fixed) G1 X<where I put the prime tower> Y<Where I put the prime tower> to the "tool end script" in printer settings.

 

This works, but has the problem that when there is no heat up time needed you run over to the tower needlessly. This is basically ok, I guess. It has helped a ton with blobbing and failed parts.

Thanks for the link!

 

Unfortunately, I'm not seeing how to use that to get my printer to perform the requested operation. It does not appear the OP got it working either.

 

Could you give me a sentence or two which gets me going?
