2.03+ Tool change/Offsets??

  • Hi there,

    I run an IDEX, and used the offset settings in the config.g file. I am running 2.04 now on my Duet2 Ethernet and after reading the 2.03 release notes I saw the offsets should or have to be moved to the tpre/tpost files. the IDEX documentation on the website no longer is current and I am not seeing on the RepRap config generator for 2.03+ settings any actual implementation of offsets.

    This is the config I have in my config.g file for my 2 different print heads.

    ; Tool 0 X - Left hand Extruder
    M563 P0 D0 H1 F0 X0 S"Left Titan Aero"    ; tool 0 uses extruder 0 and heater 1 and maps X to X, use fan 2 as the print cooling fan
    G10 P0 X0 Y0 Z0                              ; Set tool 0 axis offsets
    ;G10 P0 R0 S0                                  ; Set initial tool 0 active and standby temperatures to 0C
    ;Tool 1 U - Right hand Extruder
    M563 P1 D1 H2 X3 F1 S"Right Titan Aero"      ; tool 1 uses extruder 1 and heater 2 and maps X to U, use fan 1 as the print cooling fan
    G10 P1 X0 Y-3.1 Z0   

    With the Y offset being the only one being set. Just wanted to be sure I was doing this right with the changes to 2.03 Since none of the documentation has been updated around tool changing for this offset change.

    No you do not have to move offsets to the tpre and tpost files. But you need to account for the fact that within the tpre and tpost files, any motion commands will now have tool offsets applied unless you prefix them with G53.
