Summary

Make the most of your dual extrusion machine with this quick add on. Printing with two colors can often lead to issues with ooze bleeding color between your parts. This wiper will allow you to use Simplify3D or another custom G-gcode to cool your inactive nozzle and wipe it clean between tool changes.

Print the part out and insert a rubber strip into the groove. Clamp the wiper to the left-front corner of your printer so that it wont interfere with the bed but will make good contact with both nozzles.

Download simplify3D and load the FFF profiles. Slice your part and print!

Both the Makerbot 2X and the Flashforge Dual use the same size wiper at 110mm x 110mm

thanks for sharing this!! I'm giving it a try.
I was wondering what type of rubber strip you used? I had some red gasket rubber lying around so I gave that a try. But it seems that the PLA threads from the extruder stick to the rubber and build up rather than falling down as in your video.

I'm looking forward to trying this, I've had so many problems getting dual extrusion to work due to oozing. Always ends in a horrible mess being dragged around the platform.

I assume this would work without change on a QiDI printer?

Hi! I hope you don't mind, but I borrowed your gcode for my own version: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2002772
Thanks for uploading yours, otherwise I probably wouldn't have made mine.

Cheers!

would this work on the flashforge dreamer if so could tell us the measurements and code for this please

Copy and paste this into your tool change script tab. You will need to change some values to match your printer.

;**** This value needs to change. Move the nozzle to the middle left off the bed.
