Gcode for A10T Purge Bucket

Fri Mar 05, 2021 2:53 pm

I have a GeeeTech A10T printer. I’m trying to implement a purge bucket to improve my multicolor prints. I’m not very familiar with G code, and the more I read the more confused I get.

I have managed to move the axis over to where the purge bucket will be through direct input to the machine, so I know I’m on the right track. What I can’t figure out is the correct series of G code commands to move the extruder over to the purge bucket, extrude a sufficient amount of filament, in this case about 30 mm for the A10T, and then return to doing its business.

I assume this is going to go in the tool change script, and I need to understand where in that script is the appropriate place to put it.

If anyone on the forum is using a purge bucket with the A10T, could I get a copy of the G code commands and an indication of where I should place it. In other words can you guys help a dummy out?

Thank you

Kevin
