Preheat the inactive nozzle with G10

  • Hello everybody,
    I have rebuilt my Ultimaker2 DUAL on DuetWifi, and am now trying to adapt my setup to the new commands.
    I'm just trying on G10 S # R # and Tool change macros.
    I think the G10 is a good idea, I like it.

    Now my question:
    But if there is a possibility to pre-heat the nozzle with T # P # without activating the tool, that would considerably reduce the printing time, also known as TempMagic by Cura.
    More simply, there is a possibility to set the "Active" temperature stored in G10 without directly selecting the tool.
    Or I have to dodge again on M104, but then the G10 is useless for me.

    Here is a gcode excerpt as I had before:

    M104 T0 S185 ; Now it starts to heat for the next nozzle change

    Is there a way to do that?

    M104 T# Snnn will set both active and standby temperatures of tool # to nnn

  • Thank you for your answer

    This also overrides the temperatures defined in G10, right?
    I was hoping that there would be a possibility to work with the new G10 (for example G10 P0 S225 R170) function.

    But I need a variant to implement the preheat.
    Is there something there?
