Is it possible to have a wipe tower with two extruder ? something like a skirt, but for exemple at the right of the printed object and not around it, made by the two extruder, to purge them before each layer ??

Please add. Previously you have suggested using a skirt the height of the object for wiping - unfortunately this doesn't work very well. A large skirt that keeps getting built up increases layer pressures until it detaches from the print bed and ruins the print. If it was possible to add a brim to the outside of the skirt then it might work OK.

Looking for the same feature. Is it something one can do self by selecting "Outer perimeters first" and then ad an tower to the stl-files?

I'm closing this one because a Ooze Prevention feature was implemented.

a wipe tower would also help prime the second extruder
