Cura only adds that heating sequence before the start gcode if it sees that you don’t have heating commands in the start gcode snippet. If you put M109 S{material_print_temperature} in your start gcode snippet, Cura will not have to add extruder heating by itself. Same with M190 S{material_bed_temperature} fir the bed. 


You could also use a postprocessing script to modify the gcode.

    • "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.
