Lowering Z

Hi everyone

I wonder if there is a plugin or any other way to get Cura to lower the Z-axis/build platform to its lower end stop or atleast a bit down, after the print is finished.

I think it would be easier to break off the readymade part if the bed was a bit lower down in the machine after print so it's not so close to the extruder head.

Anyone know if it's possible to do this?

    Hi Sam

    Look in you end GCode for Cura

    It might already have code like this (Need to view full settings)

    G91 ;relative positioning

    G1 E-1 F300 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure

    G1 Z+0.5 E-5 X-20 Y-20 F{travel_speed} ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more

    Just add a higher value to Z or add a line after

    G1 Z20 ; Move the platform down another 20mm
