Endcode for moving the Z-axis.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Endcode for moving the Z-axis.

Hey Forum,

I have asked this question before, and backthen got an answer that i found not to be working.

I might have done it wrong, (im almost sure, because i dont yet fully understand the gcodes) so therefore i seek additionel advice.

Last time i asked for an endcode that moved the Z-axis to the bottom max position, i got that i should write "G162 Z" in my endcode.

My endcode looks lige this :

; Default end code

G28 X Y ; Home x and y axis

G162 Z ; Send printbed to bottom max

M107 ; Turn off fan

; Disable all extruder

G91 ; Relative positioning


{IF_EXT0}G1 E-1 ; Reduce filament pressure

M104 T0 S0

G90 ; Absolute positioning

G92 E0 ; Reset extruder position

M140 S0 ; Disable heated bed

M84 ; Turn steppers off

I cant figure out if some of the following codes mabye disable the command.

Can anyone help me with writing an endcode that sends the printbed to bottom max when done printing.

Thanks guys.

    Okay, thanks.

    But what do i write and where, to send the z-axis to the bottom?

    I know that the bottom max is about 200, but how do i put it into the endcode so it Works?

    Yes, i have an UMO+.

    I have not tried it, but im going to when i have some more time on my hands.

    but as i read, i should write "G28 Z" instead of "G162 Z" right?

    G1 Z200

    will work.  That tells the z axis to "go" to position 200mm.  G0 and G1 do the same thing.

      • 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
