Dear all

 

Just a suggestion :-)
 

I recently installed Cura (again :-))
I needed to modify the starting code to suite my likings.

 

Any comments if anyone could improve it would be great

 

 

G21 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

G1 X0 Y5 Z0 F3000 ; get ready to prime

G92 E0 ; reset extrusion distance

G1 X250 E20 F600 ; prime nozzle

G1 E-1 F100

G1 Z15.0 F9000 ;move the platform down 15mm

G1 F9000

;Put printing message on LCD screen

M117 Printing...

 

Please comment if you think that I have made a mistake :-)

    • "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.
