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.

    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 ?

    I know what you mean ,so its working better i can adjust it and no splatter into the filament.

    thanks for that .

    But still different with cura ,i like the head and bed movement at same time ,do jou know what i mean .

    its not a big deal but like it more :)

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
