Extruder rises on filament load ...

Say?

Sometimes when I load the filament, the extruder rises maybe a few cm and many times it does not. 

Anybody know why and when this happens?

Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

AIui, depending on what the printer thinks the Z position is, it rises to allow access to remove the colour change purge.

Cheerio,

In particular, if the printer hasn't homed since the last power up/reset, it assumes the current Z position is zero, and then the filament load procedure moves up to avoid extruding against the bed.
