Setting of an intro line

Recommended Posts

Posted · Setting of an intro line

I use Prusa MK2 MultiMaterial printer. Longer filament extrusion is required in comparison with standard Prusa Mk2 on the beginning of the printing as filament goes slightly longer way and previous color needs to be cleaned. When I use Slic3r Prusa Edition, it makes intro line ( I hope it's correct word - see the attached photo for what I mean ) very long and very huge. Cura generates it short and tine ( it's on the picture ). Is there a way, how to setup the intro line in Cura?

This is not answer to my question, but it's workaround, which can help to somebody. There are 2 lines at beginning of the generated GCODE, which have "intro_line" remark attached. In case these lines are replaced with this code:

 

M83 ; relative extrusion mode
G1 Z0.250 F7200.000
G1 X50.0 E80.0  F1000.0
G1 X160.0 E20.0  F1000.0
G1 Z0.200 F7200.000
G1 X220.0 E13 F1000.0
G1 X240.0 E0 F1000.0
G1 E-4 F1000.0 
M82 ; absolute extrusion mode

 

it works fine.

If I am reading you correctly then I think telling Cura to print a skirt is your answer. It is configurable so you can make it as long as you  want to. The setting is located in the Build Plate Adhesion  group.
