  1. I believe I saw the exact same video. I put my g-code in the "printer startcode" area. If you look in the generated g-code file, CURA just inserts the code without any modification. So, I replaced everything put in by default with my own g-code. You probably want to look at the generated g-code file anyway to verify that it does what you want. I also modified the "printer endcode" because I wanted to move the print bed to the front instead of it doing a home when the print was done. Otherwise on my printer, the bed was always moved to the back and you had to manually move the bed forward to remove the print. Here is what I ended up doing: ; Prefix G-Code for Creality CR-10 Mini to clean nozzle M117 Nozzle Cleaning... ; Indicate NOZZLE CLEANING on LCD M107 ; Turn layer fan off G21 ; Set units to metric (change to G20 if you want Imperial) G90 ; Set absolute coordinates G28 ; Home X/Y/Z axis G0 X5 Y10 Z0.16 F5000 ; Move in 5mm x 10mm from corner and up [z] 0.16mm G92 E0 ; Set extruder to [0] zero G1 Y210 E100 F500 ; Extrude 100mm filament 200mm along Y axis to prime and clean the nozzle G92 E0 ; Reset extruder to [0] zero at end of cleaning run G1 E-3 F500 ; Retract filament by 3mm to reduce string effect G0 Z15 F5000 ; Raise extruder to safe Z height (1st shearing action) G0 X5 Y110 Z15 F5000 ; Move to center left of bed (2nd shearing action) G1 E3 F500 ; Prime the extruder since retraction M117 Printing... ; Indicate PRINTING on LCD ; Post G-Code for Creality CR-10 Mini G91 G1 E-3 F1800 G1 Z10 F3000 G90 G0 X0 Y200 ; Eject (move print bed forward) M106 S0 ; Turn off cooling fan M104 S0 ; Turn off extruder M140 S0 ; Turn off bed M84 ; Disable motors M117 Print Done. ; Indicate PRINT DONE on LCD
  2. NO DISCUSSION? NO SUPPORT? Either, I'm the only one using a laptop with just the touchpad? Or, I'm the only one that finds the view control cumbersome?
  3. This forum is a little confusing to me. Maybe I didn't put my thread in the proper place. I just thought it should be with the Cura software and not the general feedback area. It's very annoying to swap hands on the touchpad to switch between pan and rotate. I thought FreeCAD was a better implementation and the ALT key was not being used by Cura. Plus a left cllick ends up selecting the model half the time instead of panning. Just holding the SHIFT or ALT key with a mouse move would avoid it. SORRY SandervG. I didn't mean to hijack your thread.
  4. READ the linked thread! Wasn't that you? If not, I'm sorry.
  5. No. You gave me the impression that it was futile to even bring up the subject. That I would be lucky to even get the documentation corrected to reflect the current operation.
  6. Wow... We have time to fool with a file prefix but we CAN'T be bothered to change the view controls when using a laptop touchpad to have them be more user friendly. What a pity.
  7. Take a look at this video: If your printer uses Marlin firmware, he is showing how to adjust it's settings. If you're unable to change them from the control panel, you will need to download the firmware, make the settings and flash the new firmware into your printer. In alternatively, he shows at timestamp 4:10 how to change the scaling in Cura. Which is what I think you are asking. There are many other videos showing this procedure.

Also, the view rotate seems to rotate around the viewpoint instead of the object/print bed. Hence, rotation tends move the object outside the field of view.
  9. I have the same profile status error message. Tried both themes. Running Windows 10, Chrome. I just created my account yesterday.
  10. I think this video on cleaning the nozzle is a better alternative to a skirt
  11. So, this needs to be corrected? Or, changed to ALT as mentioned in my first post. ?
  12. At least fix Cura so the touchpad works as stated in the documentation. Currently, the CTRL button does NOT work. I was just suggesting you drop the click portion for touchpads.
  13. I wish the mouse view controls worked like FreeCAD. The right click for rotation is very awkward to use. In FreeCAD the view controls are: SHIFT + Mouse Move (no button click) to pan view ALT + Mouse Move (no button click) to rotate view It seems very intuitive to just hold either the CTRL or ALT key and move the mouse to pan and rotate the camera view. On Windows 10 without a mouse, Shift+Click pans and Right+Click rotates. The CTRL+Click does nothing. A weird mix of mouse and touchpad control.
