Is there a way in Slic3r PE that you can increase the amount of filament that is wiped? I'm having issues where I need one color to be purged a little more than the other between filament changes.

It looks like the only option will be to print infill first to allow a little more purging before printing.

right side above the list of models and their extruder settings is a button called purge settings, there you can set how much volume of filament is going to be purged when loading or uploading

i printed with some white filament and colors recently and tried setting the load purge for white to 100 but that wasnt enough in my case and i would probably go for 200 next time i try it.

That was it! It seems like that should be located under the "Printer Settings" tab...
