Cura 3.0 and Dagoma Discoeasy200 printer : flavor problem

Recommended Posts

First of all, my big thanks to Ultimaker team to have added the Dagoma Discoeasy200 printer to Cura.

Unfortunately, I have a problem with the flavor feature.

With my printer the default flavor is "marlin" which seems great as this printer use a marlin firmware but this flavor add two temperature command before the start gcode.

These commands force the extruder to wait to be at the correct temperature before executing the rest of the gcode commands.

This is a problem for two reason :

- it's duplicate with the provided start gcode (not really a problem)

- on my printer you HAVE TO set fan speed to the max BEFORE setting the extruder temperature !

Indeed, the fan the fan not only refresh the plastic but also the printer palpeur for bed leveling.

If the fan is not activated, the extruder heat the palpeur resulting in wrong measures...

So I just can't use the 3.0.x version of Cura nowadays. I still use the 2.6 version.

If anybody have a suggestion for a workaround for this problem, I would be graceful...

You have a few choices. One is I believe if you set the temperature to zero for bed and/or nozzle it will just leave out any temperature commands. At least I think this was true in Cura 15.X so it's probably also true in cura 3.X

Also I believe you could edit the start/end gcode and remove any temp related commands or move them to after the fan is turned on.

    • "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.
