Final movement touches print

Recommended Posts

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 😕

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
