Overriding Start G-Code (CURA 4.0.0)

Recommended Posts

I have been using the old 15.04.6 version of Cura for a long time. I have been advised to upgrade to the beta to check out the new features and so far am impressed with the 4.0.0 beta. However, I like my bed and extruder to heat up at the same time and these added lines of G-Code prevent that when I slice.

M140 S{print_bed_temperature}
M105
M190 S{print_bed_temperature}
M104 S{print_temperature}
M105
M109 S{print_temperature}
M82 ;absolute extrusion mode

Where do these lines get added, because I used to be able to heat both at the same time with 15.04.6 with the following code.

M107; FANS OFF
M140 S{print_bed_temperature}
M104 S{print_temperature}
G91; RELATIVE POSITIONING
G28; HOME ALL AXIS
M84; KILL MOTORS
M109 S{print_temperature}
G90; ABOSOLUTE POSITIONING
G1 X5 Y5 F10000; MOVE CLOSE TO HOME
G28; HOME ALL AXIS
G29; PROBE BED
M190 S{print_bed_temperature}
G1 Z100; RAISE Z-AXIS TO 100MM
G1 X0 F1000; MOVE SLOW TO HOME
G92 E0; ZERO EXTRUDER
G1 E10; PRIME NOZZLE
M25; WAIT FOR USER
G92 E0; ZERO EXTRUDER
G1 F{travel_speed}; START
M140 S60
G92 E0

I don't want to have to remove the lines everytime I slice a print, can these lines be edited or taken out of start G-Code somewhere?

Basically it should be possible to use the same start script as before, but the names of the settings / replacement patterns have changed.

 

You will probably need:

 

{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}

{material_print_temperature_layer_0}

{speed_travel_layer_0}

 

If you're interested:

@ahoeben compiled a list of all possible variables a while ago: Settings and replacement patterns

    • "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.
