adding dynamic tagged start gcode

Recommended Posts

Posted · adding dynamic tagged start gcode

so in some slicers you can have start gcode like this

G90

M104 S[printing_temperature]

M140 S[build_plate_temperature]

G28

G1 Z0.3 F200

M109 S[material_print_temperature]

where the bracketed words will pull that value from the slicer and put it there, but i cant get cura to do that. even if it did, it always puts the hotend and buildplate temps in right before the start gcode so it looks like this

M190 S45

M104 S200

M109 S200

M82 ; absolute extrusion mode

;G28 Home

;G1 Z15.0 F6000 Move the platform down 15mm

;G92 E0

;G1 F200 20

;G92 E0

G90

M104 S[printing_temperature]

M140 S[build_plate_temperature]

G28

G1 Z0.3 F200

M109 S[material_print_temperature]

is there a way to make these tags work, as well as turning off the automatic insertion of the temps at the beginning of the gcode?

I had tried that and it didn't work originally. but now i see that i was using "[" brackets instead of "{" brackets. thanks!
