Purge before the print does not abort

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I hope all is well with you all.

I am printing silicon using Discov3ry setup and in order to get the print right, we have to use the 'Purge' print first so that the material reaches the nozzle.

But when it is very close to the nozzle, I tend to abort the command and prepare to print the desired.

But for some reason, the 'purge' command does not abort right away. It takes few more minutes to abort.

I am not sure if there is a way to quantify the time used to purging or something can be altered in the gcode.

Let me know what you all think about it.

Thanks,

Abhi

I'm not familiar with the software your using either,, but like you said, is there a way you can get into the gcode and set an E value? some distance you can judge and tell it to prime that amount so its all a flowing motion instead of you physically trying to abort.... that will be your best bet or like stated above hard shut off...

    • "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.
