I'm struggling to understand how S3D behaves with prifiles, tools and temperatures and dual extruder machine.
If I'm not wrong Gcode scripts (start/end) are coupled with profiles and I have seen they also depend on auto-configure Extruders
For example I can set T0 at the beginning of my start gcode for auto configure for right extruder and I can put T1 on start for left extruder, then a purge sequence to prime my left/right extruder.
Temperatures, There is no possibility to automatically heat only the desired extruder with a temperature taken from the temperature controller list.
I mean If I set 200 degree to both left and right extruder in controller list and I choose to auto-configure only left extruder both tools will heat.
I can set in controller list left to 200 and right to zero but then If I choose to auto configure only right extruder left ext will heat up and right will stay cold...
I have to set the heating up manually in my start gcode with something like this for auto-left
and this for auto right:
Code: Select all
T1; activate Tool 1 M104 S[extruder1_temperature] T1; set T1 Heat T1 to printing M109 S[extruder1_temperature] T1; wait T1 Heat T1 to printing M104 S0 T0; Turn off T0
This works for me, but for example in case I'm auto configuring left extruder and I have a per-layer temperature set point for right extruder, then my right tool will heat at the layer set.
Code: Select all
T0; activate Tool 0 M104 S[extruder0_temperature] T0; set T0 Heat T0 to printing M109 S[extruder0_temperature] T0; wait T0 Heat T0 to printing M104 S0 T1; Turn off T1
What is the best approach to deal with these problems?
Thanks for any help
