4.6 Issue with Multiple Extruder Start Scripts


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · 4.6 Issue with Multiple Extruder Start Scripts

It may be difficult to explain this but here goes:


Default Creality CRX profile with purge bucket. 

Left Extruder is set to T0 (confirmed in .json)

Right Exturder is set to T1 (confirmed in .json)


Using custom extra purge amounts for lighter and darker colors. So in this case, I have Left Extruder set to purge 50mm and Right Extruder to purge 100mm into the bucket. It does the exact opposite. When I move the values to the opposite side, it does was initially as intended. 


I do not see anything wrong with the machine or extruder profiles but it seems like the extruder start code is being applied to the opposite tool.


I've attached code that should purge 100mm on left tool (T0) and 50mm on right tool (T1) BUT it does the opposite and purges for twice the amount on the right side.
