I'm currently building a custom IDEX printer. The plan is to use Marlin 2.0 which supports IDEX and mirror/duplication modes with M605 Sx.
My initial idea was to simply make a Cura profile with a smaller bed and M605 S2 for duplication or M605 S3 for mirror in the start Gcode.
What would be extremely nice is if Octoprint can assign the M605 command. In a way that when you start a print you can say print it in duplex or mirror mode.
What did you already try to solve it?
As mentioned I'm currently building the printer. So I don't have anything to test yet.
Additional information about your setup
Current firmware (will be updated once machine is finished):
Octoprint 1.4.0 running on Octopi 0.17.0 (currently installed on Tevo Tarantula for testing)
Marlin 220.127.116.11 running on BTT SKR V1.1 Pro
It would be extremely nice if something like this is possible! Thanks in advance!
For the print bed geometry changes from normal to copy/mirror mode (as half as wide), it would be easy to set up a separate printer profile with the used commands in the start section in the GCODE scripts.
Thanks for the quick response, I have used octa print for single extruder, but haven't tried with IDEX, atlst is there any possibility and can guidee how I can duplicate or mirror the prints in octaprint.
Ur support will be highly appreciated.
