Setting of an intro line

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
