The ability to add a filament change to MORE than one instance, without having to know how to edit Gcode and using strings in the post-processing section, there is no where that it is explained in layman's terms just how the post-processing section works and with what commands and examples, like {REPACE "; layer 5," "M600\n; layer 5,"}.

Also, you have to remove the post-processing command for prints where you need no filament change, It is just too convoluted as it stands.

Thanks for the feedback! We'll monitor this thread to gauge users' interest in UI elements being added for filament changes.

Filament change option with editable GCODE snippet is a must have in any slicer nowadays.

In the meantime, if anyone is interrested, for now I use the following script (in start script), it does not use M600 as it is not working on my printer...

You just need to create a Process named "Process1-2" to pause and change your filament.

Code: Select all

{REPLACE "; process Process1-2" "M83\nG1 E-10\nG0 Y10\nM84 E0\nM0\nG1 E5.0\nG1 E-5.0\nM82\n; process Process1-2"} ;pause  and change filament
