Long dwell times between tool changes

  • Hi,

    I'm seeing some fairly long waits between tool changes. It's really killing my print times.
    It's usually around 10-15 seconds, but I cant for the life of me figure out why.
    Wish it was instant.

    Is this a firmware / configuration issue or software issue?

    Is anyone else seeing this?

  • Could do with some more info but if your tools have individual heaters, then that's generally caused by having to wait for each tool to heat from it's standby to it's active temperature. If that's the case, you can make it instant by setting the active and standby temperatures to the same values for all tools. The downside of course is that you may get some ooze from tools which are not in use.
