Chimera LH nozzle is complete garbage!

  • Hi

    So, RH nozzle of Chimera works beautifully. But for the life of me I cannot get the LH side to work with e3d spoolworks breakaway support filament.

    Firstly, the offset seems total garbage. But I've checked and double checked and checked it again. The X offsets are -9 for T0 and 9 for T1.

    The slicer is Cura 3.2.1. Relative extrusion.

    LH nozzle tries to print miles away from the print, but it doesn't print at all. Just seems to hang there and not extrude, and then makes moves nowhere near the ooze shield.

    There must be something obvious, but I can't see it. Can anyone help?!

    Please share your config.g file. Also make sure that you have the nozzle offsets defined only in config.g and not also in Cura.

  • Ah, that could be where the error lies...

    In config.g I have

    ; Tools
    M563 P0 D0 H1 ; Define tool 0
    G10 P0 X0 Y-9 Z0 ; Set tool 0 axis offsets
    G10 P0 R0 S0 ; Set initial tool 0 active and standby temperatures to 0C
    M563 P1 D1 H2 ; Define tool 1
    G10 P1 X0 Y9 Z0 ; Set tool 1 axis offsets
    G10 P1 R0 S0 ; Set initial tool 1 active and standby temperatures to 0C

    In Cura I've reset both to zero. I'll try again tomorrow!
