Posted · Switch off 2nd Feeder Motor in GCode

Hello,

I have a DualExtruder installed on my UM1.

Currently i print only with one extruder.

But the 2nd feeder motor is very hot, too after printing. (without use)

Possible, that the motor hold the Position.

Is there a GCode, where i can switch off the motor when i don´t need it?

Thanks for all help i get.

Andreas

    Official Marlin has this option since a few days ago, however the default Ultimaker version has it not yet. Either you download the Marlin source code from Github or you have to be patient until this feature finds its way into the default Ultimaker firmware.

    Afaik there is no way to switch the motor off directly with Cura. Maybe with a special gcode command in the start.gcode.

    For the first time, i rmove the plug from the board, but this is not permanet option for me.

    If anybody have an idea, please let me know it.
