simplify 3d

Posted (edited) · simplify 3d

Hello just bought simplify 3d and had a question ,i copied the starup gcode and end gcode from cura into simplify .

but when i start a print the printhead extrude 8 mm of filament and then the printhead splashes in to the extruded filament an go to the center of the build plate etc.

printing works fine .

With cura when print starts it extrude 8 mm of filament the it goes to center en higher the buildplate at the same time ,i realy like that behavior better! on my ultimaker plus.

Do you guys/girls know how to manage that  in simplify 3d?

    This is de start code i'm using on my Ultimaker2, due to my dual head setup I  start in the front-middle (X110 Y45), but you probably want to change to something like X20 Y20 (front-left)

    You can use mine to have a look and than  play with the XY till you'r satisfied.


    G28 ; home all axesG1 X110 Y45 F3000 ; bring extruder to the frontG92 E0 ; zero the extruded lengthG1 Z30 ; lowerG1 E50 F225 ; purge nozzle with 50mm of filamentG1 X80 Y60 F3000 ; avoid landing in the fillamentG92 E0 ; zero the extruded length again

    If you just try the code I put here, and observe while it's executed, I believe you must understand each line, and then be able to adapt to you wish... and I think the comments on each line are clear ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
