Can someone PLEASE explain to me how to use the ColorPrint utility with a MMU machine? For the life of me, I can't get it to prompt for a color change or switch extruders.

Thanks!

Isn't there supposed to be a M600 somewhere in the modified code? I'm not finding one.

I think there is an easy option and a complicated one, and neither use the colorprint utility.

easy: Use PrusaControl, it has colorprint builtin.

complicated: use "cut" in Slic3rPE to throw away the upper part of the model, doubleclick it, load the same model as modifier mesh, and assignt correct order and extruder.

At least that is what I can find out. I don't think there is a better way currently.

Thanks for the reply!

I guess the ColorPrint utility is broken?

I got PrusaControl to work. The second option generates a waste tower, right?

Apparently, the downloadable ColorPrint works fine. It's the online one that I can't get to work.
