What G-code commands tell the printer to change nozzle on a dual extruder printer?
I have been playing around with creating scripts to generate some custom G-code for a Malyan M180 and I am having trouble understand what commands to use to switch nozzles. Sometimes I can get the nozzles to switch and it doesn't recenter but sometimes it does.
I have been using:
M108 T0; switch to left
M108 T1; switch to right
Has anyone else looked into this and have any idea what commands or sequence of commands should be used to change nozzles?
Be careful with questions about G-Code as it is no longer standardized and can technically be different between manufacturers and even between models. This is true across all machines (mills, lathes, 3d printers, routers, etc.)
No, M108 does not do that. You are looking for T#, where # is the tool position you want:
T1 ; switch to tool position 1
T3 ; switch to tool position 3
This tells the processor to send all heating, cooling and flow commands to this tool until another tool change is specified, and invokes the X/Y(/Z) offset for the new tool position.
