How to set Extruder Change start/end positions

Posted · How to set Extruder Change start/end positions

I'm a newbie  running Cura 4.6.1

I want to change Cura so that it returns to the Prime Tower before changing over the temperatures from one extruder to the other.

The current default setting is it stays where it is in the print, changes temperature, and then moves to the prime tower.

 I know the settings to do this need to be set up in the printer profile extruder settings and the settings in question are:

 

{machine_extruder_start_pos_x} Extruder Start Position X The x-coordinate of the starting position when turning the extruder on.
{machine_extruder_start_pos_y} Extruder Start Position Y The y-coordinate of the starting position when turning the extruder on.
and    
     
{machine_extruder_end_pos_x} Extruder End Position X The x-coordinate of the ending position when turning the extruder off.
{machine_extruder_end_pos_y} Extruder End Position Y The y-coordinate of the ending position when turning the extruder off.

 

but i'm not sure what the syntax is to set these.

Please can someone help?

Thanks

Maurice

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
