Gcode not working in cura

Recommended Posts

Hello, I own a lulzbot mini, but it is my understanding that cura is a MakerBot software. I am trying to find the z-offset of my printer using G-codes . But none of the commands I put in are working. Please help I have no idea what to do.😐

Cura is not a “MakerBot software”, unless you mean it is software for 3d printing in the same way that all copiers are called xeroxes.


There is a z-offset plugin in the marketplace (or toolbox, depending on your Cura version). Also note Lulzbot has its own version of Cura specifically for their line of 3d printers, and their own support forum.

    • "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.
