Hi and thanks for helping me.

The hardware changes have been made as well as extruder/flow calibration. 

I managed to arrive at a very good configuration/setup for the 1st extruder, T0.

Now, What do I need to do next? Ar there some tutorials specifically for beginners like me? I know in the Printer Settings I need to change extruder number from 1 to 2 in the general tab of printer settings.

Is there a way to copy/paste the settings from Extruder #1 (T0) to extruder #2 (T1)? I have a Y configuration, 2-in-1-out.

I think think is almost straight forward.

Something I really have no Idea of doing, is the different g-codes for tool changing and so on. And this is where I need help. Any already defined g-code for this will really help me a lot.

I attached a picture of two failures I managed to print with Cura. Many people advised me to rather go with PS after seeing these massive failures.

So, here I am and need your wise & experienced printers to teach me.

TIA.
