Posted · Start Gcode for custom build klipper machine with dual extruders

Hi all,

 

I searched around the inet, but did not come up with a solution so far. The problem is as follows:

 

I build an custom 3D printer with a switching extruder constisting of two orbiter extruders each with a e3dv6. Everything is working as expected. The machine code is fine and first dual extrusion kits were printed. For convenience I would like to adjust mit START_PRINT script which is mainly done, but I do not find a simple solution to hand over the temperature of the second extruder: 

 

START_PRINT BED_TEMP={material_bed_temperature_layer_0} EXTRUDER1_TEMP={material_print_temperature_layer_0} EXTRUDER2_TEMP={"need_a_cura_variable_here"}

 

It seems that all the cura temperature variables are not directly linked to a particular extruder (just the actiev one). Can you give hint, how to go on with this?

 

Thank you very much,

Georg

    You can specify the exact extruder to get the value from like so:

     

    EXTRUDER1_TEMP={material_print_temperature_layer_0|0} 
    EXTRUDER2_TEMP={material_print_temperature_layer_0|1}
