Start G-code


Recommended Posts

Hi guys first time user here 

I have a Anet A6 hobby printer

I have leveled the bed and everything looks great and the XYZ go to home position just fine 

I am using the Cura 3.4.1 version on my Mac High Sierra 10.13.6

When save the print file and install the Micro USB into the printer and then I select the print file to print

all the axis move to start printing but the extruder starts going downwards into the bed and gets stuck 

I know there is something I can change in the start G code to get it to go to a relative position and just start printing 


Can anyone please look at this G-code and tell me what I need to change so I  can print my kids toy replacement part

I have checked the stop switches and they are all in place and operates fine but for some reason the extruder starts going down from left to right 

I set went to the venue and set the axis to home position then I went and disabled the motors and manually (slowly) moved the bed to each corner and leveled the bed with the nozzle 

Also measured the Z axis to make sure it was not out of alignment and it is perfectly straight on either side.


Your input will be greatly appreciated

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
