Based on the feedbacks from users of RaiseTouch version 0.9.10, we have added a few new features and fixed a bug with the new version.
Added Extruder Offset Settings for N series printers.
I just want to make sure my fellow users go back and read the release notes for 0.9.9 where this feature was added for the Pro2 series, but not the N series. If you use an old offset dual extrusion print file and have this enabled- or forget and do not update your Ideamaker or other slicer profiles- this can apply a double offset. Again, I highly suggest all users pay attention to this who do dual extrusion, this is a good change, but is a rather large difference from "the way it used to work". Again, this is actually a very good change, but it's one of those paradigm shifts where a rather significant change in the way dual extrusion coordinates is handled.
Just to list it out:
Makes the gcode print file and dual extruder agnostic. This means that the same print file can print on a print farm of printers, each adjusted for it's own custom slight offsets, and since the printer does the application of the offsets- the same agnostic print files works on all of them.
Since this is the way many other slicers and printers work- preview in various alternate gcode previewers will look "correct" because there is no gcode offset in the print file. Again, this is a huge change and the way much of the rest of the 3D printing industry has been working for a long time.
Makes tuning the offset easier- no need to reslice the file over and over. Just print, change the offset, print again, until the offset in firmware is correct.
Old print files made with an offset requires changing the setting in firmware to disable the offset- luckily, this is a toggle and retains your settings so that you can easily do this from the touch screen.
Added Enable Extruder Offset and Extruder Offset settings under More Settings -> Hardware -> Extruders.
If you have edited the Extruder Offset in IdeaMaker or other slicer, please disable this option in case of an incorrect calculation for dual-extrusion prints. Again, also ensure you label or remember that old print files created before this change- they require disabling the extruder offset in firmware because the actual gcode already has been offset.
