Hello everyone!

I'm using a Tenlog DL3 pro it is supposed to be used with CURA but I want this to run on PrusaSlicer. 

The profile is looking good so far but the only bug issue I'm having is that: It parks the next printhead above my piece when the other is done printing and it oozes some fillament and burns the price below a bit.

I'm looking for any settings to change the tool switch 'position' or 'park' to prevent this.

In my CURA profile the print head stays at this X-home position when its prepareing to print agian. So how do I do this in PrusaSlicer?

If you have any experience with this or you might know a solution then plaese write me back 🙂

 

Thanks for your time everyone and have a good day!

I don't have a multi extruder setup myself, but I suspect the key is to issue a park command in the tool change custom gcode field under Printer Settings.

Hello, I'm looking into the differences in post-processed .gcodes between PrusaSilcer an CURA and, yes PrusaSlicers seems to call out custom 'fillament gcode' everytime it switches print head. I did not specify anything there. but I wonder why I did not have to do this in CURA. The only thing I ever did in CURA is specify Start and End gcode. I'm a bit of a noob so I don't know yet what I have to edit in my printer settings to get the same outcome in PrusaSlicer. all tips are welcome 🙂
