Home/Auto Bed Level during Palette Filament Creation

Hi Mosiac,

I have a CR10-S5 that uses 25 point auto bed leveling with a BL Touch. I would like to trigger a G28 and G29 (Auto Home/Bed Leveling) while the Palette is creating the initial length of filament.

I have tried putting the G28/29 in the gcode of Octoprint (but that makes the Palette wait for the bed leveling to complete prior to creating the filament.

With the G28/29 in the sliced code it waits for the printing to start before performing the functions.

I would like to use the ‘dead time’ while the Palette is creating the initial to perform these functions..

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey @darinparsons, thanks for your question. Unfortunately, currently you cannot add commands while Palette is creating filament due to the M0 command, which pauses the print until Palette is ready. The M0 is right at the top because we don't want any extrusion commands to happen before filament is properly loaded. Theoretically heat up commands, mesh homing, etc. could be run during this time, but so that it works with all printers and start up sequences, M0 is right at the top.

Ok.. that makes sense.. I was just hoping there was an alternative to make the process more efficient.
