craftbot 3 profile starting script editing request

Fri Jul 31, 2020 4:29 pm

I've been editing my gcode files to enable either mirror mode or parallel mode per an earlier support answer from your team. Thank you for sharing that easy edit to enable those 2 head modes.

This request is for how to edit the Starting Script so that tool 1 wont go through a starting purge routine. Do I need to remove these lines from the "starting script"
T1 ; switch to right extruder
G92 E0 ; reset extrusion distance
G1 E20 F600 ; purge filament
G1 X325 Y3 Z0.2 F4800 ; go to wait position
G92 E0 ; reset extrusion distance
G1 X160 E10 F1000 ; prime the nozzle
G1 X150 Z0.05 F5000 ; quick wipe

I'm asking this so that when I'm using a raft (this file takes 55 minutes) I can let the idle tool have a non-melting temperature. Up till now, I've set layer 1 for 250, layer 2 for 120 then layer 5 at 250 again for the 1st layer of model.

Another solution might be to have a layer 0 be associated with the startup script. then layer 1 for the actual build.

Yes, If you remove those lines, T1 (Right extruder) will not get primed as part of the starting routine.
