Bug ?: layer count during dual print

  • So i just noticed this

    During a dual print, every toolchange counts as 1 layer done. However while the total layers shown is correct. The total printed layers reaches 100% when in actuality the print is only 50% done

    Do you have Z lift configured in your tool change files? That might be confusing it.

  • I was also confused with that too. In S3D when slicing dual print I noticed every toolchange means layer number change. It doesn't make sense to tie layer number with toolchange…

    Please share a gcode file that demonstrates the problem, also your config.g file.

  • I see the same thing. The layer total time estimate is 0. Quad color in my case. I have z-lift, but it doesn't have any trouble with z-lift for single color prints. Multi color – a few issues -- the S3D analysis of the GCode says the part is 10mm tall (it isn't) -- it's a 2X size benchy boat, so it is whatever that size is. Also layer count is wrong.

    If someone can provide sample GCode files and config.g to demonstrate the problem within the next few hours, I can try to get a fix done in release 1.20.1. Otherwise a fix will have to wait until the next major release, which is many weeks away.
