  1. I have checked the Marlin firmware of my printer. It uses M125 as command to send a pause to the printer in case that the menu "Print Pause " is selected. Other printers are using M226. You should try to find the layer which should be printed after the pause (search for ";LAYER:layernumber" in the gcode file) and enter M125 or M226 as previous command. Sometimes it is helpful to move the printhead in a higher position to get space to handle the nut and then move the printhead back.
  2. Hi, yes you are right. There are red areas in the x-ray view. But I have no idea how to prevent those areas in the string!? I have used FreeCAD to generate the stl-file. And in FreeCAD I can't see any problem. But at least it seems it is no Cura related topic any more. Nevertheless Thanks.
  3. Hi, could some explain why the printed version of the horse differs from the original stl-file? I have checked that in cura 3.4.1 and 3.5.1 - no difference in the results. Thanks in advance for any hint. Regards Dieter
  4. @tinkergnome: Thanks, that is what I was looking for.
  5. @ultiarjan: At the moment I'm changing the generated gcode manually to get the desired result. And I have no problems with cooking PLA or anything similar. My question was simply if there is a chance to tell or setup cura to generate the desired gcode. @yellowshark At the beginning I have used manual preheating of heatbed and extruder. After reaching setpoints close to the values used in cura I started the printing. But why doing something manually if technology could be used to generate an aquivalent result. I thought that someone knows something like a patch or a way for an automated postprocessing with ....... It seems that I have to accept that there is no way to change it. Nevertheless thanks for everyone for the comments.
  6. Thanks for your reply. The commands I'm talking about is part of the gcode which is generated previous to my start gcode: ;FLAVOR:RepRap ;TIME:906 ;Filament used: 0.566464m ;Layer height: 0.2 ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 3.1.0 T0 M190 S65 M104 S210 M109 S210 M82 ; absolute extrusion mode ;StartGCode defined for Marlin 1.1.6 DB version 20171210 G21 ;metric values G90 ;absolute positioning M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode M107 ;start with the fan off G28 X Y Z ;move XYZ to min endstops G1 F1800 ;set speed to 50mm/s G1 X0 Y0 ;move to A8 heatbed-zero G1 Z15 F3600 ;move extruder up G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length G1 F600 E3 ;extrude 3mm of feed stock G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again M117 Drucke... I'm looking for an idea to change the sequence of M190, M104 and M109.
  7. Hi, a part of the generated gcode of cura always contains M190 S65 M104 S210 M109 S210 for my used heatbed and extruder temperatures. Is there any way to change the sequence to M104 S210 M190 S65 M109 S210 in the settings? It would speed up the preheating phase. Thanks in advance for an answer.
