Gcodes for starting script for UM3 using S3D

Recommended Posts

The default starting script for simplify 3D is:

M106 S0 ; fan off

M204 S1500 ; default acceleration

M205 X15.00 ; maximum X Y jerk

T0

G1 X2 Y5 Z5 F15000.0 ; heating location

M140 S[bed0_temperature]

M104 S[extruder0_temperature] T0 ; heat left

M190 S[bed0_temperature]

M109 S[extruder0_temperature] T0 ; stabilize left

G1 Z0.2

G92 E0 ; zero extruder

G1 E30

G92 E0 ; zero extruder

G1 X100 E15 F1000 ; purge left extruder

I would like to modify this to still go to X2 Y5, but instead of purging the extruder from x2 to x100, do a Cura style purge where it just depositing a large blob of filament. I found this does a better job getting rid of any different color PLA when swapping colors. What would be the best way to change this to do that. I know G280 does the filament purge on the UM3, but I'm not sure what to remove/replace.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
