  1. There should be no problems running both versions of cura on your machine. I am doing the same because 15.06 led to horrific over-extrusion on the first layer. The proper codes are already in place, all that is left to fill in are the values which are dependent on the material you are printing with. For example, I normally print ABS using 250c for my extruder and 90c for my bed. At the end of the print I like to cool the extruder to 150 and the bed to 80. This way it heats up quickly when I start my next print. When the connection to the printer is established I like to auto-warm the bed and the extruder to 150/80. If you are using an older cura with your settings changed to reprap flavored gcode, you will need to edit the start/end gcode in cura. If you are using the new cura (15.06.x), you will have to enter the start/end gcode into the octoprint gcode script settings. Of course, all of these scripts can be edited to suit your needs. -Kevin
  2. Hey guys, been working with Octoprint/new Cura. Just wanted to post up the gcode scripts I've been using to get Octoprint working correctly. You will have to manually fill in the temperature values marked with "?". I have not tested the Pause/Resume scripts yet, so be warned. Everything else seems to be working fairly well. -Kevin ;Start GCodeG21 ;metric valuesG90 ;absolute positioningM82 ;set extruder to absolute modeM107 ;start with the fan offG28 ;homeG0 X20 Y20 F15000 ;bring extruder to the frontG1 Z25 F15000 ;move the platform down 25mm M190 S? ;bed temperature M109 S? ;extruder temperatureG92 E0 ;zero the extruded lengthG1 F200 E55 ;extrude 55mm of feed stockG92 E0 ;zero the extruded length againG1 F15000 ; set travel speed;End GCodeM107 ;fans off M104 S? ;cool extruder M190 S? ;cool bedG91 ;relative positioningG1 E-1 F200 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressureG1 Z+5 E-25 F15000 ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even moreG28 ;HomeM84 ;steppers offG90 ;absolute positioning;After Pause GCode (NOT TESTED)G90 ;absolute positioningG1 E-25 F200 ;retract the filament before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressureG1 Z20 F15000 ;move the platform down 20mmG0 X20 Y20 ;bring extruder to the front;Before Print Job is Resumed GCode (NOT TESTED)G90 ;absolute positioningG92 E0 ;zero the extruded lengthG1 F200 E55 ;extrude 55mm of feed stockG92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again;After Connection to Printer is EstablishedG28 ;home allM107 ;fans off M190 S? ;warm bed M104 S? ;warm extruder
