Netfabb gcode header/footer manipulation


Recommended Posts

Posted · Netfabb gcode header/footer manipulation

Netfabb generated gcode contains a 'fixed' header and footer witch u can expand with a user defined gcode header/footer (Machine/...Extended Setup/Ultimaker specific)

The Netfabb header contains homing (G28), temperature setpoint (M109) and some more things.

I'm looking for a way to manipulate or turn OFF these Netfabb header, so i can use my own sequence.

Anyone ?

    Hi Berend!

    I have not tried this yet, but I think it's the correct place:

    * Go to "Ulitmaker" in the Project-Tree on the right

    * select the last Tab "Machine" (I translate the german tags, so the english version could vary a bit;-)

    * "Machine-Type" should be "Ultimaker" and here at the right of "Ultimaker" hit the button with 3 dots "..."

    * A Dialog opens -> select the "Ultimaker specific"-Tab and you see "GCode Header" and "GCode Footer"

    I think, entering values here will do the job.....

    Let me know, if it works! (I wanted to try this weeks ago, but I fogot it........)

    Best regards from south of munich,

    Hi Toni,

    Thx for thinking, but...

    the place of the header/footer you describe is the same i described in the 1st post.

    The header you can define here is like an 'extra' header/footer.

    It's placed to the top (header) and bottom (footer), additional to a Netfabb generated header/footer.

    So the complete header/footer consists of a user defined part AND a Netfabb defined part.

    For me it's interesting to know how this Netfabb generated code can be manipulated.

    I like to have control over the full header and footer including the Netfabb part.

    Looking forward to your experience with this,

        (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.
