Prime line on Y axis

Thu Feb 11, 2021 8:05 am

I am wanting to set my prime line onto the Y axis. I have upgraded my cooling fan duct to the Bullseye and it has ducts on both the right and left side of the nozzle. When my printer goes to do a prime line the first part of filament will often curl up until it has good adhesion and will end up catching the duct on the left side. I'm just trying to figure out what I need to change in the starting gcode script to make it do the prime line on the Y axis like Slic3r does. I think i just need to change "G1 X160 E15 F600 ; prime nozzle" to "G1 Y160 E15 F600 ; prime nozzle". I am very new to the gcode part of this hobby so I'm not 100% sure that is the right move. Also will I need to change the "G1 X180 F5000 ; quick wipe" portion too?
