So just doing some research and definitely this is because repetier firmware needs to know how to “Mix” the materials. That start Gcode I gave you before should have done that for you. First it set the mixing for both tools to 100%, then the hotend was heated, then T0 was selected and then it was told to extrude 100mm. We’re you using that gcode? I’m guessing if you were, you probably had the steps per mm set to 835 instead of 417.5?

Moral of the story thus far, is ignore manual extrusion for the moment. Set microstepping to 16x and steps per mm back to 417.5

Although I feel it would be easier to sort this seemingly seperate layer shift issue first with the single v6 firmware and once figured, go back to the MM firmware.
