Mixing extruder Cura setting temperature wrong

Recommended Posts

Posted · Mixing extruder Cura setting temperature wrong

I'm trying to set up a profile in cura for a dual extruder with a mixing hotend. I've set up the extruder as single nozzle in marlin and the premade testprints from the printer's company work fine.

In my start gcode I'm setting up the mixing tools with M163 and M164 and selecting them with the T[x] function (in this case T0 and T1).

In cura I've also enabled a prime tower. So in theory when switching colors it should do this; 

;go to prime tower
;start printing this color
;go to prime tower
;print other color


My problem is that for some reason when cura selects the new tool, it only does it after the prime tower, aswell as setting the hotend temperature to 0 when selecting T1

I've checked my settings and there is not a single one that would indicate it setting the temperature to 0. 


Anyone who knows what's wrong and would like to push me into the right direction?
