@DaniAO that will mean creating a separate machine in Cura for TAZ7 single print w/ dual toolhead. This is also separate from the variants for HS, HS+, SE and SL toolheads.

We may be able to make it the same as the SE machine but that will get confusing to users really quick

@tutley I don't think we will be making this start gcode standard, but from a support perspective customers will want to have the un active nozzle be cool.

Thinking UX will be:
1.) Create new machine, and rename to something like E1 only
2.) update start/end gcode

Should be pretty painless, easy to add to directions, and great copy and paste for support.

@karrad after the discussion this morning in R&D do we still want this gcode?

@tutley We are good on the gcode for now, we will push forward with "No Material" profile and material. Will get a new ticket logged and merge this one in
