2 in 1 mix nozzle plugin for 100% E0 to 100% E1 color changes.


Recommended Posts

Posted · 2 in 1 mix nozzle plugin for 100% E0 to 100% E1 color changes.

Hopefully a better adept programmer (my skills are noob at best here) will care for this niche style of FDM printer, but in the event case there is I am leaving it out there that I may not ever finish it... But I am going to try to create a plugin to switch the extruder over earlier for 2 in 1 nozzles like the Geeetech A10M A20M styles.  I figure it should be user definable as for the length of material that it should swap out for before reaching the start point for the next material.  This should reduce the need to make huge blocks to clear the nozzle of the other material before getting to the next up when multi-material/color printing. 

I will update here as progress occurs.  But if this is too easy for you, beat me to it by all means.
