Pause on extruder switch


Recommended Posts

Posted · Pause on extruder switch

quick question guys, i am wanting to pause the S5 when the head goes over to the side to change from one nozzle to the other. My reasoning being that the bottom face is to have text on in a different colour to the surroundings and the first nozzle is leaving slight debris in the void and then the new colour shows that debris as it prints over the top of it. I want to pause the printer, clear the stringers and debris and then let it continue on with the next nozzle colour. I hope that make sense.


So basically a pause and bed lowering on extruder switch.


Can anyone help me out with a script or gcode for this?


thanks guys.
