Looks like the issue is caused by enabling WipeWall. We will try to fix it as soon as possible.

If you have urgent needs for this feature, let me know. We can prepare a beta version for you to use.

Thanks Vicky but don't, in this case, bother doing something special just for me. (I'll know to ask if I really need something like that :roll: )

In the meantime, how about this

Honest - I haven't changed anything. See the zip file for an Inventor part, the STL and the GCode.

I guess this proves that it has something to do with the Wipe Wall 'cos everything is okay with a Wipe Tower.

We have double checked, the issue should only be related to WipeWall.
If you want to use right nozzle for Raft only but model and support are printed by left nozzle, you can enable "Stop Printing Wipe Wall and Wipe Tower if only one extruder in used" option under Ooze tab. It should can help solve your issue.
