Groups and Layers Extruder Change

Postby losbozos » Sun Dec 13, 2020 5:18 pm

Is there a way to execute an extruder swap using the groups and layers section? Lately I have had a number of situations where I wanted to change filament colors based on layer height. Slicing a model and and specifying the extruder is certainly a more powerful general tool, but much more painful than just being able to specify that change in the Groups and Layers settings in the simple case. I'd like to be able to Select Extruder or have an extruder SWAP command (if LEFT, then RIGHT, otherwise LEFT, for example) based on layers or groups.

You can add Custom Gcode under Layer Change.

Hi, could you please provide more detailed information on how to change the gcode under layer change? Also, is there maybe a different, more easy way? I juyt want to print two colours, nothing fancy.
