I tried to modify the gcode of a print, to change the printcore at some point in the print.

I sliced with AA.8 printcore first an at a hight of .2 eachlayer.

Then I used a pligin to change the filament at layer 35. which was 7mm hight.

Then I edited the gcode and cut everything after the plugin indication.

Then I sliced everything with .25 Printcore and layers of .05mm placed a plugin to stop to change material at layer 140 or 7mm.

Edited the gcode and cut away all up to the plugin indication.

Copied what was left and past it at the beginning of the other print.

I tried it but it didn't work.

Here is the file.

The E values don’t match up if you don’t adjust them. You can do that by adding an G92 E(e-value) between the two parts. The e-value would be the last E in the gcode you cut away from the 0.25mm file.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
