Change the geode used to switch extruders

Posted · Change the geode used to switch extruders

Hi Daid,

In the file current_profile.ini in the section [alterations] is a variable called switchextruder.gcode. Can this be used to alter the gcode used to change extruders? On a Wanhao Duplicator4 for instance the gcode used to change extruder is "M108 T{extruder}". If that's not the case, is there another way to achieve this? (besides manually changing it in the output file)

This is the only thing that keeps me from using Cura to slice objects for dual extrusion on that printer. I still need to convert the gcode to x3g format anyway though.

Thanks in advance!

Guy

geode in the topic should be gcode !
