Dual-extrusion - Heating takes place right on model

Recommended Posts

Been working with getting Dual extrusion setup, both with two extruders, and with Palette+. I've mostly got it working correctly, except that when it switches extruders, it just stops at the last command and calls the temperature change and waits until it heats up before moving. Usually, this means it's sitting right over the model, and ends up melting part of what it printed. What would be the appropriate way to have it move the nozzle, up or a least away from the model before doing this temperature change?

    • "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.
