Hi all. (and thanks)
Two questions if possible.
1)
I wish to never start second inactive extruder to raise temperature at start, but the only way i find is to set it to 0 at first layer in the temperature control panel.
2)
Which is the best method to recalibrate printer plan? I can see a difference in height through that plan but seems very complicate.

I think you might need to update your printer and ideamaker. Nowadays I only need to heat up the inactive extruder if the printer needs to switch nozzle at the start.

If you have restarted the printer it needs to do one switch to know which head is down. After that it knows and it wont preheat the one raised.
