Marlin M600 Equivalent



  • Is there a way do do the equivalent of M600 in Marlin which
    1. Stops the print
    2. Moves to a new location
    3. Unloads the filament
    4. Waits for the operator to change the filament
    5. Extrudes filament to prime extruder
    6. Waits for operator to signal new filament loaded (and old filament purged)
    7. Resumes printing at the stop point (saved at #1)

    I got spoiled by this one on my Wilson 2 for switching colors.



  • You can use the pause.g and resume.g for moving back and forth from the print, then either manually change the filament while paused or define macros to speed it up.
    Also you need to put M226 in the gcode at where you need to do the switching.



  • Thanks. Not quite as easy but pretty close.

    With firmware 1.19 beta and the latest DWC you can do all of that in a macro. Use the M290 command to display the message and wait for a response. Before long, PanelDue will support M290 too.



  • Very nice. that will be a nice upgrade.
