That is indeed a great idea. For anybody that manages to get their adjusted in the first place, I can see that being optimal. I assumed Pathogen was referring to the gcode at the start of this thread.martin.w15 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 11, 2018 12:28 am[...] My preference is to tune Z live adjust for just one filament type (i.e. PLA) and just put a relative Z offset in the slicer for the other filament types eg 0.2mm for PETG. This means if my live adjust changes due to a different nozzle or something else I just have to retune PLA and the slicer offsets take care of the other filaments.
I've been annoyed trying without success to embed gcode to pause with a message for different filaments, but you idea is even better. Thanks!
Edit: What slicer are you using? I see a z-offset parameter in Slic3r, but unfortunately, only on the printer page. I've found the following suggested for custom gcode:
Code: Select all
; start code contains homing, pre-heating, auto-leveling, nozzle priming, etc. G1 Z0.2 F500 ; Go to the level of 0.2 mm + your paper thickness G92 Z0 ; This redefines the zero Z level
