Purge tower infill

Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:58 pm

Hi all,

I've just purchased a Creality CR-X dual extruder printer. It uses one nozzle to print the 2 colors so it uses a purge tower to change colors. As a test, I downloaded and printed the traffic cone. It printed great, but it made a purge tower that is solid PLA the same size as the tower, even though it only changed colors 3 or 4 times during the print. The tower is easily twice as much plastic and the cone. I understand that the purge tower needs to be the same height as the printed piece s the nozzle can purge on to something (so it's not trying to print into thin air) but is there anyway to make the purge tower only print a 10% infill when the nozzle isn't actually purging?

Thanks,

Joe Frank
