IdeaMaker gcode suggestions

Postby A_Bob » Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:59 pm

First it would be nice to have the option to disable the automatic generation temperature control gcode. I like to use custom gcode to start heating the bed and home at the same time. Then I will place the nozzle at 0.1mm layer height to prevent oozing when heating the nozzle. I have no problem doing this with simplify3d or slic3r but I prefer to use IdeaMaker for the N2.

Second it would be nice to be able to control the gcode sent when between print heads on a dual extrusion printer. I like to place the unused nozzle at a standby temperature when switching nozzles the wipe the unused nozzle when it reaches standby. This makes dual extrusion prints near flawless with no contamination from the other nozzle.

Third make an option to generate a wipe tower with low infill and have it guarantee a wipe the unused nozzle before resuming the print. This could be used with the second option I stated above to prevent oozing on the print and save filament by not needing a wipe wall or dense prime pillar.

1. We will consider to add an option for you, about not using the default start. If you want to disable it, don't forget adding your own preheating inside the Start code. ( But M221, flowrate control will still be force added.)

2. Gcode editing for dual extruder switching. Notes taken.

3. Wipewall density setting needed. Notes taken.

Hi,

I am in a dilemma with temperature control while changing nozzles. Is there a way I can cool down the nozzle that just finished while heating up the nozzle that is about to start simultaneously in the designated corner?

Hi,

Is there a way I can ask the printer to cool down the inactive extruder while heating up the extruder that is about to become active?

You can enable inactive nozzle cool down and have nozzles move to a corner you define during the heating and cooling process.

Thank you for the reply, however, the cool down is "during" printing, I would like to know if it is possible to cool down the nozzle while the other one is heating up, a simultaneous operation being done in the corner specified.

Currently, the extruder head will go to the corner and heat up the nozzle that is about to take its turn...then that nozzle will go back to the part and take its turn...only now will the inactive nozzle start cooling down...I would like this nozzle (inactive) to cool down while the other nozzle was heating up.

To heat the other nozzle first is for the nozzle switch. As one nozzle will be lift up and the other will drop down. If no heat provided to soften the filament inside, movement of the nozzles may do hard to the printer.
