I have a custom Ender 3 with a Y Splitter for dual extrusion. I'd love to be able to write custom gcode for it, but I can't for the life of me find what the gcode is for next tool. Cura has separate start and end custom gcode scripts for each extruder, so you obviously can edit those individually. In lieu of that, I need to be able to write the code using things like "current tool" "inactive tool" etc.
I started using PrusaSlicer about 3 hours ago. I usually used Cura. I have an Ender 5 also with Y-splitter & dual extruders.
I'm battling in Cura to get a dual colour square to have an acceptable look. It looks terrible, to say the least.
So going from Cure to Prusa, is a completely different ball game ... something I am busy discovering.
Did you manage to get your machine with the Y-splitter to work? I will really appreciate it if you can help me with your/sample gcode to get my printer going again. I tried but it only did a small print of something that looks like a very narrow strip and then said it is finish with the print.
Thank you so long. Will really appreciate your help.
