Auto inserted M104 T0 S0 during print with dual extrusion.

Recommended Posts

I use 2 extruders with 1 hotend, and everything works great, except Cura keeps putting in a M104 T0 S0 at the end of tool 0's model.  

If I have a model that is 2 colors, and tool 0 ends and tool 1 continues the rest of the print without going back to tool 0, Cura will insert a M104 T0 S0 at the last layer of tool 0's model.  This is a problem when running with a single hotend and will turn off the temp for the hotend for the rest of the print and ruin the print.  Is there any way to prevent cura from inserting this command in the gcode and let me control shutting off the heat with the end gcode?  This seems to be a serious problem for single hotend with dual extruder machines depending on the model. 

*quick edit:  I have both printing temps and standby temps set to full temp on both extruders in the slice settings.

    • "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.
