Dual Extrusion - Pause position during nozzle heat up


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Dual Extrusion - Pause position during nozzle heat up


I use a dual printer (Dual Extrusion, single nozzle).


When there are two different filaments used with different printing temperature, the print head pauses when waiting for the nozzle heated up to the correct print temperature. But, the nozzle waits above the printing area and therefore, it creates a drop of filament at the waiting position.


It would be better, if the nozzle would move to an non-printing area to wait for heating up and then move to the next printing position. But I couldn't find an option for this.


How do You solve this problem?
