Custom Start Gcode

Recommended Posts

I prepared a custom start Gcode for my E3D BigBox in Cura 2.5.0 Beta. But after slicing there is an additional Gcode before my custom start Gcode.

;FLAVOR:RepRap

;TIME:4698

;Filament used: 3.26804m

;Layer height: 0.2

;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 2.5.0-BETA

M190 S75      ;)

M104 S215      ;)  I want to eliminate this 3 lines

M109 S215    ;)

; below is my custom start Gcode

M140 S75

M104 T1 S120

M109 T0 S120

M109 T1 S120

M104 T1 S210

....

....

....

How can I eliminate above 3 lines of Gcode before my custom start Gcode?

Kind Regards,

Franz

CuraEngine checks your start gcode and sees if you use the {material_print_temperature} variable to heat up the nozzle. If you don't, CuraEngine adds its own nozzle heating gcode.

Make sure your start gcode contains the line M104 {material_print_temperature}, and CuraEngine should no longer add its own lines.

Thank you!

.... and the line: M140 S{material_bed_temperature} to get rid of M190 S75 .

BTW is there a placeholder for "first_layer_bed_temperature" in cura 2.5+ ?

I can't find a comlete list of this placeholders.

    • "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.
