Unload both nozzle on the same time.

Would be nice for us that regularly change between PLA and ABS for dual print.
Also load both nozzle would be nice as well.

Do you mean printing with PLA and ABS together in one dual-print and printing two nozzles at the same time?

No. Sorry. When changing filament in the printer. I have to do the left nozzle first. Wait for it to get to temp. Press unload.
Then I have to do the right nozzle.
And then I have to do the same again to load new filament.
It takes a while.

It would be nice if the printer had an option to unload booth filaments at the same time.
Select the temp and press unload.
The printer would hear both nozzles and when it gets to temp it would just unload without any button press on the screen.

And the same for load.
Choose temp and press load. Both nozzle heat. They start to load. (Which I can here since the motors start. No nead for a button press). I feed filament in to he tubes. And I stop the procedure with “done”.

The motion board firmware doesn't support moving the two extruder motors at the same time.
What about set two nozzle to heat them up to loading temperature at the home page. Then choose Load/Unload one by one? Then you don't need to wait heating for twice time.

Yes. That would be an alternative. Thank you.
