GCode Tab

Postby deharrow » Mon Dec 05, 2022 4:32 pm

Hello community,

concerns an IDEX printer with 2 print heads. I have stored 2 different GCodes for Start GCode in the GCode tab:

I just can't get it to take the GCode for the right extruder, only the code for the left extruder is in the GCode file.
In the preview everything is shown for the right extruder (model, skirt ect.).

What can be the reason? I have two different colors and want to use one extruder each to print a model.

Unfortunately, I have not found a placeholder that determines the particular extruder like PrusaSlicer or Cura:

M104 T[initial_extruder] S[first_layer_temperature] ; set extruder temp
M104 T{extruder_nr} S235 ; Set extruder temp

Can you advise your printer model?
If you want to modify the temperature for first layer, you should be able to edit it under Tempareture.

It works for me. Keep in mind that this is not left extruder gcode/right extruder gcode. You are only going to get one or the other. And to get the 2-extruder gcode, that second extruder has to be actively used in the output file. Either assign it to infill, supports, etc. or assign it to a second model. Then you will see the other gcode that you assigned. Strangely, it is not enough to just have 2 extruders; you have to have 2 extruders engaged in the particular file.
