Cura - UM3 - Prime Blob Amount

Recommended Posts

I don't think you can, you can instead disable the prime blob and write your own prime gcode.

go to the manage printers screen and click machine settings then set your gcode as the start gcode and you can apply your own version of priming for every print.

It can be edit using developer mode, using ssh to access the printer, moving inside share/griffin/griffin/machines/jedi.json (or was um3.json?) and changing the prime poop/blob amount to any amount your heart desires.

@bondtech has a step by step manual to edit the esteps, I say this because esteps and prime poop are on the same file and all is editable, so reading this manual is the fastest way to do it right.

Read from page 12-13 and read before doing it blindly, you need to change other parts of the file.

If you brick the machine you can do this

And all this stuff to just change the prime amount... Wow

    • "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.
