Re: Old Polymaker PC Plus?

Baked PC for 5 days and finally was moisture-free.
To keep moisture-free, made a retainer for teflon tube feeding from filament dry box to extruder.

Desiccant alone won't fix it -- it seems to me that stuff can keep something dry, but it can't seem to dry something that's taken in the moisture already.

Re: Possible G-Code?

Thanks for suggestions. Thinking this will help when switching between tool heads. However, use at your own risk cause I barely know what I'm doing here! :? I added another printer titled Print Height Check , and through Machine settings deleted Stop Code and replaced the last few lines of the Start...
