Wipe & Prime Tower

Recommended Posts

Posted · Wipe & Prime Tower

I believe it is used when you are doing multiple filaments. The system will build a tower next to your model, and use it to wipe off excess filament and prime the next color. Not sure if it is for dual extruders or switching between filaments on a single extruder.

Default setting is unchecked, but the option is only available if you told Cura you have the dual extrusion upgrade.

I have dual extrusion, the reason I ask the default setting is I accidently bumped my keyboard when I had it highlighted, so it deleted the default numerical setting.

What is the default numerical setting?

Is there a way to increase the plate area of the tower. It keeps getting knocked off after about 40mm, which ends up ruining a long print? Even to give a brim to help it stick?
