deactivate unused extruder

Postby danielq » Wed May 23, 2018 1:00 pm

Hello folks!

first post here, so if there is something wrong, tell me!

Before I start a print I usually start heating up the bed and the extruder that will be used during printing, but when I start the print, the printer wait till the second extruder reach a predefined temp.

I was wondering if there is any way to don't heat up the extruder that is not used in the print?
I'm sure this can be done manually by modifying the gcode, but I hope there is setting or maybe modifying the start gcode if there is one

thanks to anybody will replay!

If your printer is a Pro2 series printer, this preheating process is normal. As it is set for protecting both nozzles in case nozzle switching and lifting before print starts. Or if the nozzle lifts with cold filament inside, it may do harm to the nozzle.
