Posted · how to increase extruder height when travelling

Is it possible to specify the height of the extruder when travelling and not printing? E.g. higher than the z-offset value?

I am trying to print a second colored layer at a lower height than a first layer, so I want to make sure nozzle nozzle clears any existing prints/walls from my first print.

    Z-hop is the thing that you're looking for.
