Hi.

Any value I put into line count doesn't increase when I print. Is this a bug?? It goes only once around then starts the raft

My extruder is not primed properly

Without line count so I really need it.

Help?

    Currently, if you have a raft, you don't get a skirt printed - skirt is disabled, and so the settings are ignored.

    There are a couple of things that you can do to prime the head before the print starts. Firstly, as it nears the printing temperature, turn the extruder gear by hand, to force some plastic through the nozzle.

    Secondly, you can change your start gcode to extrude more than the standard 3mm. I prefer to extrude 6mm, slowly, and then pause for a couple of seconds, so I can clean the nozzle. The end of my start gcode now looks like this:

    G1 Z15.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm

    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

    G1 F60 E6 ;extrude 6mm of feed stock

    M1 P2000 ;pause 2s

    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

    G1 F{travel_speed}
