Resting position while warm up. Waiting dual extruder.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Resting position while warm up. Waiting dual extruder.

hi all,


I know this is a solved issued, covered by @ghostkeeper @amagro and @smartavionics  in these threads: #3451 #4511 and #4901 but it is something very difficult for me to set the parametters. The resting position of the printing head must be changed using the .def.json file. (it is not a basic level profile user).


I am asking, is not possible to set up this XY position in the profile, or as a override parametters. (similar to Prime tower XY position).


Thank you.

    You can adjust those settings from within the Cura interface - as well as save them to a profile - if you install the Printer Settings plug-in from the Marketplace.


    Otherwise, I suggest taking it up with the MendelMax support. Maybe they have experience with this issue with other users.

    For Ultimaker printers this position is set to be at the switching bay, where it needs to move to perform the tool switch.


    Many other printers have just one nozzle rather than two (with multiple feeders feeding material in it) and to them the tool switch is completely digital or just involves a retraction and unretraction. We've made this the default for third-party printers. This is most likely why it's not making any motion for your printer, while heating the other nozzle.


    For yet other printers with multiple distinct nozzles, they'd need to have it configured correctly in their printer definitions. The MendelMax falls in this category.


    There is no way to create a correct default for all printers. We need some information about your printer to do that. In this case, the information provided by MendelMax to Cura is incorrect or incomplete.
