Hi.

I dont know if anyone could help, but i think someone might.

I would like to have an end code written so my printer vil move the ekstrision head "home" ( the front left corner, and move the builtplate (z-axis) to the bottom of my printer.

Im not familier with g-coding yet, but i would like to have this end code, so the ekstrusion head dont shut Down right over the printed object.

Mabye the option to "cool Down" and then shut Down after moving the ekstrusion head and bed would be a really nice feature.

Im currently using Repetier Host as print programme, and i can see that you in this programme is able to vary your start and endcodes from print to print. Therefore this endcodes would benefit me a lot.

Thanks in advance.

    Dosn't the cooldown commands automatically get added to the end of your g-code when slicing?

    Here's an elaborate overview of g-code commands, look in your gcode once you have sliced (you can just use a regular text editing tool), and see what is going on...:

    For instance something like: G28 X Y would home your x and y axis

    G162 Z would send z to its max position (bottom)

    The end code makes the printer cooldown, but i am usually going to print while im at Work juring the day, and i dont want my printer to stay on with 20-something degree on the hotend and the bed.

    When it is not printing i donmt see why it should stay on. thats why i want to make this endcode.

    But thanks, ill check up on the coding system, and hopefully get the right result.

    Are you referring to the room temperature of "20-something"? The hotend and bed are not actually on at that time.

    Of course. haha! beginners mistake.

    so when done, evrything is shut Down, just leaving the Ulticontroller on?
