Posted · Using Purge buckets on an IDEX printer

All,

 

When using an IDEX printer with purge buckets. how can I set cura to preheat over the purge bucket then purge before moving out to print. I know Lulzbot preheat in advance of being needed then cool to 175 temp when not in use. How can i configure my setup to heat in advance of being needed and then cool when not needed. Also heat and purge over the purge buckets

    I too have this question, I have just put together an IDEX build. When a tool change happens, the selected extruder moves above the print into position and waits a bit to hit required temp whilst oozing, then immediately starts printing.

    What printer and firmware are you running?

     

    there is a line in Marlin, something about “do not return to previous position” or something along those lines, seemed to do the trick
