I’m scheduled to receive my new TwoTrees BLUE-5 printer today. As one of my 1st projects after setup/shakedown, I’d like to print a logo with a black base and gray lettering.
On advice from this site, I’m trying IdeaMaker as a slicer.
I have zero knowledge of 3d printing, what is the best way to do the filament change at a precise point in the print job? is this something the slicer inserts in the g-code? or do I just print two models, one on top of the last? No clue how to do this. Thanks!
You should probably be able to change your filament using the “Filament Settings” tab. so print on a new layer by changing a couple of settings.
u will need to set up the print job to pause at the desired layer for the filament change. You can do this by inserting a “Pause at Height” command in the G-code.
Here’s how to do it:
Click on the “Advanced Settings” tab in IdeaMaker.
Click on the “G-code” tab. Find the line that says “Layer Change G-code”.
In the text box next to “Layer Change G-code”, insert the following command:
M0 ; Pause print
Replace “Layer Change G-code” with “Layer 5 G-code” (or whichever layer you want to pause at). Save your settings and export the G-code file for printing.
i hope this helps, lemme know how it goes
