Pre extrude more filament at print start?

Recommended Posts

I've been using ideamaker and it pre extrudes like 100mm of filament while nozzle has a high z height, making it easy to grab. Then it is clean while it moves in for first layer. Cura just pre extrudes less than 10mm and even if I manage to grab it, it dribbles a little more as it touches down and that bit just gets dragged around and caught on the nozzle.

Do I have to modify the gcode to get a longer extrusion and higher z before first layer? I want to use Cura for other settings but this first layer is always so crummy.

Printer: cr10s

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
