Hangs changing tool

  • When I turn on my bed heater then turn on the hotend Changing Tool is displayed in the top right of the web app. While that is lit nothing else is possible except diagnostics which is displayed below. 60 seconds or passes before it accepts any command. Is this normal operation? When I reverse order it does it less often.

    It's probably normal. You must likely have a command in one of your tool change files that waits for the new tool to reach temperature. That will block further commands from the same input stream except for diagnostics and emergency stop.

  • If I heat the nozzle first it does not hang. If the bed is heating then try to start the nozzle heat it hangs for quite some time, some times over a minute.

    ; Tools
    M563 P0 D0 H1 ; Define tool 0
    G10 P0 X0 Y0 Z0 ; Set tool 0 axis offsets
    G10 P0 R0 S0 ; Set initial tool 0 active and standby temperatures to 0C

    You probably have a M116 command in your tpost#.g files, which will wait for all temperatures including the bed. I suggest you add a P parameter to wait just for that tool to reach temperature. For example, in tpost0.g use command M116 P0 instead of just M116.
