Back with another stupid question for the group. I watched a couple videos explaining the g code generator, but I've noticed he has a drastically longer extruder to hotend distance than I think I have, so I'm just trying to double check.
I have the 3D clippy attached to my SOVOL SV06, and All of my filaments are fed down to about 1 inch from the y adapter. Am I measuring the distance from the chameleon extruder to the hot end or from my SV06 extruder to my hot end? Even if I use my chameleon extruder, I'm still quite a bit shorter than some of the distances used in the videos
PS: does the generated g code include the code for the 3D clippy to zero the x-axis to perform a cut on the filament? Again, extremely stupid and blindly feeling my way through a lot of this as I go, so I appreciate the forum existing 😂
Thank you for the always quick responses. Hopefully I'm not hindering your china trip too much.
Since it has the direct drive, do you have a preference to run in loader/unloader mode, or direct drive mode? I know the guide says the direct drive mode is a more difficult installation, so that probably means more questions from me.
In your case, that distance is very short... the extruder to hot end is only 10s of mm.
In the Autogenerated Tool Change GCode, the default installation is where the 3DChameleon is loading a large distance like an Ender 3 does... however, since you have a direct drive, the physical distance is very short. You'll want to remember that the Autogenerated GCode also adds 30mm to it on backing out... which shouldn't be problem for you, but it is there.
The printing profile I used for the SV-06 is in the Printables.com link here: https://www.printables.com/model/371141-3dchameleon-mk3-mounts-for-the-sovol-sv-06-includi/files
It should be a good start for you.
