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 

 

G28 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 Z10 ;home Z

G1 Z15.0 F840

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

G1 F200 E3 ;extrude 3mm of feed stock

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
