g-code problem on Anet a8

Recommended Posts

Posted · g-code problem on Anet a8

Hi guys,

 

I'm using cura 3.2.1 on my anet a8 and I'm having problems with my gcode. Because of the udapte (I think it's because of that), there is 2 gcode section, one for the machine (start/end gcode) and one for the extruder (extruder start/end gcode), the problem is that when I try to find a g-code for my printer on the internet I only find one (start/end) g-code, it's not separated in two section and I don't know what to put in each section

 

Here is my start gcode :

 

G21 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

G1 Z15.0 F3600 ;move the platform down 15mm

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

G1 F3600

M117 Printing...

 

end :

 

M104 S0 ;extruder heater off

M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)

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 ;move Z up a bit and retract

filament even more

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops, so the head

is out of the way

G1 X0 Y+180 F3600 ;move buildplate forward

M84 ;steppers off

G90 ;absolute positioning

 

 

What should I put in both section ?

 

At this point, what my printer does is home, start the skirt, randomly goes at the Y axes end, keep doing the skirt and randomly goes at the X axes end..

 

Can someone please help me ?

I have found this on You Tube - don't know if it works yet but noticed that the code was slightly different from that listed above
