Posted · Cura to run my Robo 3DR1+

Hello, 

I am new to the group and am trying to use cura as my slicing software. The matter control that came with it crashes with complex designs. It seems I need the start and end Gcode. I enclosed a pic of whats here now. The bed doesn't level or anything, it just starts printing.

 

Thanks for the help.

    In MatterControl, you can get the custom G-Code that it starts and ends with from Settings>Printer>Custom G-Code.

     

    I made a combination of the Cura settings and the MatterControl settings for something I liked more.

     

    My start G-Code that I use in Cura is:
     

    G92 E0 ; reset expected extruder position

    M565 Z+1 ; set z offset

    G28 X0 Y0 Z0 ; home all axes

    G1 Z5 F5000 ; lift nozzle

    G28 X0 Y0 Z0 ; Home Z again in case there was filament on nozzle

    G29 ; probe the bed

     

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    My end G-code:

     

    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 F{speed_travel} ;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

    M84 ;steppers off

    G90 ;absolute positioning

     

    Hope this helps people in the future!
