Material Change GCODE

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I am trying to figure out how to include a material change in between a print. I am using a custom version of slic3r for my workflow. I am wondering what GCODE to use to change the material on fly.

Something like this

- Home the head

- Lower the build plate by x amount

- Display "removing material"

- Move the material back by X amount

- Display add material

- This is where i am getting misled. How will we know when to stop when the material comes out of the nozzle.

In short, i am trying to replicate the material change using marling Gcode.

anyone who has experience with some other way of doing this please chip in. I am open to options. Just that I dont want to do cura + plugin way beacuse it alters my workflow dramatically.

Sam.
