Been trying for two days to get any dual color print to work on my new Artist D Standard. I am using Idea Maker for the slicer.
Either E1 or E2 at any given time will just stop when it gets to the end of its turn printing its layer and instead of returning to its home position and it will just sit there till the other extruder comes and collides with it.
Last print I did E1 layer 1 printed fine, it moved back to home and a second or two later E2 moves into position and starts its layer all goes well till its done with its layer and instead of moving to home so E1 can do its next layer E1 just crashes into E2 and starts grinding, at which point I quickly turn the printer off.
I am using a Full Control profile I got from the JG Artist FB group and everything seems to be ok with it,except when it comes time to print and the extruders will not home correctly between layers/colors.
Here is my Extruder Switch Code, and the firmware version I am using is Twinkie.2022.2.2.
I don’t have time to dive into the issue deeply, but my own 1st thought would be to revert the printer to its original firmware and try again. I would also raise it as an issue with Twinkie. He may well respond.
If you had success with the apr2021 version, I would try that. Heck, try them both. Do it on a small test piece. The idea isn’t to get a perfect print – not at this point. The idea is to identify where the issue lies. Is it firmware, or not? If it is, then which version or versions? Finding which version(s) are causing problems would greatly help Twinkie find the issue and resolve it.
