Trying to "present" print after finished, but Y = -10 so cannot move


Recommended Posts

Posted · Trying to "present" print after finished, but Y = -10 so cannot move

I'm trying to "present" the finished print by inserting appropriate move codes at the end of the gcode file.

My end gcode includes this:

G91 ; relative positioning
G1 E-1 F300 ; retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure
G1 Z+0.5 E-2 F1500 ; move Z up a bit and retract filament even more
G90 ; absolute positioning
G0 X0 Y220 ; present print

However, the bed does not move forward. If I try to move the Y axis manually, I see the current position after the print is negative (Y=-10), so it will for example refuse to move in 1mm steps. I suspect this also blocks the move command.


How can I fix this?

    First of all I would avoid the G91.  You can reset the extruder to zero:

    G92 E0


    But I wouldn't reset any other axis.  You can still use the G1 E-2


    Now why are you moving the Y to position 220?  That's all the way to the rear?  Would it be better to move Z to 220?


    I guess I need to see a photo of your particular printer.  On the ultimaker printers, moving Z to 220 would make sense as that lowers the build plate down (the head doesn't move up and down on ultimaker printers).


    wait - you must have a bed that moves in Y.  Okay I like this - slide the print forward to the front of the printer.  Just don't do this G91 at all as it is probably what is causing you the problems.  G92 is much safer.  G91 probably has bugs.

      • 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
