@tutley Can you post the start gcode for quiver here?

it may need optimized in the future to speed up the whole start routine, but what i have here has been working well.

This has both start and end g code

@tutley When generating gcode, what tool head and profiles were you using? (Will use that as a base for now)

@karrad i started with taz6 dual v3

Default material category currently supported. Needs to be updated to "all" or we need to define supported materials through testing

@tutley Thoughts on wipe nozzle gcode? Can i use the existing commands in start gcode, or is there a need for specialized wipe button gcode?

@karrad i think it would be cool to have a wipe button because of the auto calibration stuff, but we havent made the final decision on a wiper pad for quiver. We have the dual material wiper (scotch brite and normal wiper pad) or just the traditional wiper. I personally like the traditional wiper as the abrasive pad will wear out the nozzles faster

@tutley That sounds good. When we finalize the wiper mount, I will get it updated. I am guessing this will mean changes to the start code as well?

@karrad if we go with the dual wiper yes, but @west already came up with some g code so it should be an easy change

This is the updated Quiver dual-extruder start gcode for FW 2.0.0.32 and beyond (that firmware shifts the coordinate system to correspond to TAZ 6 exactly).

updated, pushed to master

karrad: Here's an update to the start GCODE. It should be used with FW .33:

Start gcode updated, a fresh master build should pull it in

Alpha Quiver is in Cura versions 3.2.32+. In the menu, go to Settings --> Printer --> Add Printer... -> Other --> Other --> Q --> Add Printer --> Finish.

You may have to edit the printer configuration to set the Port to /dev/ttyACM0 if AUTO isn't working.

Found end gcode needs updates:

M400 added before turning off motors

Update M84 --> M18 X Y E ; turn off x y and e axis

@west Kicking this one back to you, the only item we need is a wipe nozzle gcode for integration.
