The plugin uses a similar (but different) trick to that, but adds a setting to the sidebar so you can edit the offset without having to go into Machine Settings to edit the start gcode. This setting can also be stored in profiles, so you can have different profiles with different amounts of "squish".

    TQVM!!!

     

    I see this as a fundamental setting, odd its only supplied by a plugin.

     

    Yellowshark,  if you switch types of filaments it allows you to change an important setting on the fly.  As ahoeben said but to expand:

    If I use PLA I want some squish to make adhesion to the build plate so I reduce my Z-offset a tad to attain squish, but with PETG I don't want any squish as it will OVER adhere and be far too hard to get off the plate.

     

    I maintain profiles for my materials so I can fast change all my settings without having to play gcode games ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • 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
