I'm new to Coura. I've been using slicer but looked at coura and it looks as if it has a better fit for me. I'm fairly new to to 3d printing. I uploaded the stl file..made some changes in coura and started printing...notihing complicated..just a flat piece with some lettering on it...
 

here's the problem. When the bed gets to operating temperature, 60c  ...it moves the extruder to the home point, except it parks the head about two inches off the heated bed. Then when the extruder gets to 210, the head starts moving and filament flows from the head while at the same time the head is lowering towards the bed.  It's not going to work that way....but everything is okay....

anyone ever run into something like this?

 

It's a sintron ultima 

 

thanks  rb

    If I am reading you correctly then what you describe is normal, minor differences depending on printer/firmware. Depending on how well your printer is setup, one of two things will happen; either the filament will immediately stick to the bed or it will not, in which case you will drag some filament along the bed before it does stick. It is advisable to print with either a brim or a skirt, which does two important things. Firstly it will keep the string of extruded filament away from you model; secondly this allows the pressure to equalise before it starts printing your model.

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
