M701: Load filament
- This command can be used without any additional parameters.
- Snn Filament to load
- M701 S"PLA"
RepRapFirmware 1.19 and later implements a filament management mechanism to load and unload different materials.
This code may be used to load a material for the active tool, however be aware that this code will work only for tools that have exactly one extruder assigned.
When called the firmware does the following:
1) Run the macro file "load.g" in the subdirectory of the given material (e.g. /filaments/PLA/load.g)
2) Change the filament name of the associated tool, so it can be reported back to Duet Web Control
If this code is called without any parameters, RepRapFirmware will report the name of the loaded filament (if any).
