Prime pillar height

Sun Aug 23, 2020 2:54 pm

It would be useful to have either a max height for the prime pillar or (better yet) be able to turn off the prime pillar after a certain layer or extruder change.

A recent model I printed had only one color/extruder for 90% of the model height above a certain point. It would have wasted more filament in the prime pillar than was actually in the model. As a result I had to turn off the prime pillar and put up with fudged up colors for a couple of layers after the tool change.

Another workaround would be using an additional process, starting at the desired z height with the prime pillar disabled.
