Hi
I have a custom Ender 3 with a Y Splitter for dual extrusion. I'd love to be able to write custom gcode for it, but I can't for the life of me find what the gcode is for *next tool*. Cura has separate start and end custom gcode scripts for each extruder, so you obviously can edit those individually. In lieu of that, I need to be able to write the code using things like "current tool" "inactive tool" etc.

Thanks!

Only information I'm familiar with is this https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/wiki/Slic3r-placeholders-(a-copy-of-the-mauk.cc-page)

Beyond that I think you will need to ask on the prusa Slicer github page.

In expert mode under Printer Settings it is possible to write g-code for tool change.

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

Hi.

I started using PrusaSlicer about 3 hours ago. I usually used Cura. I have an Ender 5 also with Y-splitter & dual extruders.

I'm battling in Cura to get a dual colour square to have an acceptable look. It looks terrible, to say the least.

So going from Cure to Prusa, is a completely different ball game ... something I am busy discovering.

Did you manage to get your machine with the Y-splitter to work? I will really appreciate it if you can help me with your/sample gcode to get my printer going again. I tried but it only did a small print of something that looks like a very narrow strip and then said it is finish with the print.

Thank you so long. Will really appreciate your help.
