Ooze shield crosses the part

Mon Feb 01, 2016 3:58 am

Hello,

While printing a dual extrusion part with an independent dual extruder printer and with "ooze shield" enabled I have seen that on extruder change, the new one starts the ooze shield on the opposite side of the part, I mean, it crosses the part before starting the ooze shield which results on a dirty part as in the following image:

Is there any setting to prevent or set where your extruder is (right/left) so that the ooze shield algorithm starts on the nearer point of its "idle position"?

Thank you

Did you input the correct toolhead offsets in the G-Code tab? That will probably make a difference if you didn't set them (or used the wrong values)
