Hi there, do I understand correctly that the Tool change gcode will extrude the same amount of filament for each filament change, regardless of which colours we are going to/from?

In other words, is there an equivalent of the "Purging volumes" dialog box in PrusaSlicer, to extrude more filament when changing to a lighter colour, etc?

Hi @roger-graham

You are correct that the default script will not consider the from or to filaments when changing colors.

BUT, there is a way to do this. You can use the vintagePC script to respect all the parameters you setup in PrusaSlicer.

Here is a link to the script github page.
