3D Tips and Tricks
under construction more to come..
This section is really going to be more of a F.A.Q of problems and issues I faced with suggestions to steer you towards a hopefully helpful solution.
Changing the color of filament mid-way through a print
G91 ; set relative positioning
When your print arrives at the gcode you inserted it will pause the print, lower the bed 40mm and lock the stepper motors until you resume the print. During this pause the Hot-end and Heated bed will stay on, you need to swap the filament and use the controls on your printer to advance the new filament far enough that your old color is completely gone. Now resume the print taking care to pull any residual filament from the extruder/hot-end. Assuming eveything went correctly it should resume exactly where it paused and start printing the new color of filament.
