CURA Setting for Flashforge 3D Printer

Hi Everyone

 

I'm Evo...

 

For FLASHFORGE printer User sometime I frustrated for  "How I can use CURA for my Flashforge Printer?"

 

CURA is a wonderful Sclier and many people use CURA as their main slicer. 

 

Somehow I might figure out How to Use CURA for Flashforge 3D Printer

 

I believe many of us who own Flashforge 3D printer and Ultimaker product want to use only one slicer software only for both machine

 

So I would like to share My finding here and hopefully wonderful Cura-Ultimaker community can work together with workable CURA for Flashforge 3D printer

 

So here is setting and Finding on the attachment. in this case I use Flashforge Guider IIS

 

Not perfect but I think it's a good start to improve the code.

 

I believe we can still do Coding in CURA custom code. but I'm not really familier with it.

This is possible, I have created the start and end g-code for a flash forge finder and have used it to print parts.  You essentially open up a .gx file created by flashprint and copy the end and start gcode out and you are ready to go.

    As far as the FlashForge Adventurer 3 is concerned, I have made the following observations:

     

    - The nozzle temperature is always +8°C above the setting in the g-code-

    _ The print head does not always return to the home position.
