Solved Z offset for dual extruder
I have dual extruder setup where one of them is lifting up when second extruder is used.
So E0 is low and moves up when E1 is used by moving U axis, therefore there need to be 3.5mm offset on Z axis for E0
I tried to implement Z offset in config.g using G10 P0 X0 Y0 Z3.5 U0 - it worked for offset but messed my printer and it Z axis wouldn't move during print anymore, printing only using X and Y axis.
Is there any other way I can implement this offset? I'm very basic with gcode.
the first extruder should not have an offset.
define the offset for the second extruder.
You're right, adjusting offset on E1 doesn't mess printer in the way E0 does.
I swapped connections between E0 and E1 and it works fine now thanks.
Its very weird that E0 does this, I took me a while to figure out it was Z offset on E0 causing that.
@Veti I just printed calibration cube and it came out 3.5mm too short, missing bottom layers.
Z axis doesn't work until it reaches offset height I setup on E1: G10 P1 X0 Y0 Z3.5 U0
I removed offset from G10 command and instead in Cura in extruder2 start g-code I added:
This did the trick, now I have to find way to implement it in duet config file. It works fine but I prefer to not rely on Cura to execute this command.
can you adjust the minimum
from something like this
M208 X0 Y0 Z0 S1 ; set axis minima
M208 X0 Y0 Z-3.5 S1 ; set axis minima
