Hi,

I'm just now switching from Cura 15.x to 2.5 can anyone tell me if it is possible to execute G29 before the automatically added heat up code (M104, M109) in 2.5?

Best regards,

Kai

    What printer do you have?

    If you have a Ultimaker2 you can switch to reprap(marlin/sprinter) code in machine settings and have full control of the startup code. In this case you do need to set your own start and end code as the firmware start/end will not be used. Plenty of examples on this forum.

    My printer is a home build delta printer similar to the kossel mini in dimensions.

    I'm already using reprap(marlin/sprinter) but the temperature is still inserted before the start gcode.

    Ah, right, I just checked on my custom ultimaker where I also use Reprap(marlin/sprinter) and it's indeed the case.

    I think your options to get something before the temp codes are to change it manually (not very nice) or to write a cura plugin.

    OK writing a plugin it is. I actually did that before for 15.x not knowing that just using the M104 M109 commands in start gcode would remove it automatically but for 2.x that does not seem to be the case anymore.

    Is there some documentation on the new plugin API?

    there's a link here somewhere, if you google you probably find a few more post on the new plugings and changes in recent versions....
