Final movement touches print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Final movement touches print

Hello, I love Cura software, however, there is small annoying stuff :D

Last movement (after the print is completed) moves the head to corner, but during that movement Z (height) is not changed, so actually hotend is touching everything on way leaving mark.

Is there solution for that? 

something like - after last printing movement (before sending everything done signal), add +1mm to Z  -  adding to Gcode automatically

    You could add something like the following to the end code for your printer (defined in the machine settings dialog):

     

    M83                    ; relative extruder moves
    G1 E-4 F2500      ; retract 4mm
    G91                     ; relative moves
    G1 Z5 F5000       ; raise nozzle 5mm
    G90                    ; absolute moves

    Thanks, it works. But unfortunately, it still leaves mark, the last movement is from the far oposite of model (to the corner where hotend parks), it moves through the model (leaving mark), then stops at the model corner on the other side, does your script (hotend moves up) then moving to the parking corner. Bad luck for me ?

    In that case, have you set combing to no skin? If not, try that and see if it helps.

    No skin works perfectly!!!

     

    Thank you good man!
