It couldn't hurt to ask I guess.
I don't really have specific issues I think.
I have observed that I need to double babystepping when starting my second print, I don't home between prints, I would like to know if this is a known bug/issue or an issue on my end.
I would prefer to not use babystepping at all, and set the head offset directly.
However, setting the Z offset of the head/tool does not actually alters the height of the head directly ? This is still the case ?
Both these issues seem to have the end result that setting the correct Z height for a dual head printer is a lot of work, this means I end up spending more time tuning the printer than printing.
I would like to know if there is a better way, it's not so much that I can't get it to work , it's more that these settings will only be good until the next clog and that clog could cost me hours in setting the correct height again.
Some (all) of this is off course user error.
So, is it possible to just avoid babystepping and have something similar that is saved between prints and reboots and allows me to set the Z height of head 1 & head 2 using an up or down button and/or with the offset command so the head moves to the new position and also remembers that this z-offset needs to be applied from now on until I change it again.
I have included an image of the printer, it's really a very simple kossel based design with dual extrusion.
both heads are on a rotating part bringing either head 1 or head 2 down.
probing can be done by putting an M6 bolt between the mechanism so both heads are placed "symetrical", the endstop is a simple microswitch on the bottom of the part cooler/blower.
Switching itself is a simple on/off that switched a valve fills one of the both ends of the pneumatic cylinder.
It works well fairly well actually but still needs some work for it to work well in +50 degrees celcius.
