toolhead offset

Mon Sep 08, 2014 12:22 pm

I have a modified RepRapPro Ormerod with 2 extruders.
I can not find where to set the nozzle offset in simplify3D, the machine has an offset in the X direction of 12mm so on tool change, the whole hotend needs to move X12mm so that tool2 is in the same place that tool1 was in on tool change.

Is there any scrips I could use in the Tool Change G-Code section?

Thank you for any help
Ormerod-Multicolour, 2 nozzle
firmware 0.78r-alpha-dc42 and web interface 1.01
slic3r-1.1.7 and/or Simplify3D 2.1.2

You can use the M218 command

in your starting script it would be:

M218 T0 X0 Y0;
M218 T1 X12 Y0;
