cura 3.6 not using the start gcode

Recommended Posts


I have been using cura 15.04.6 for a while and decided to try 3.6 after 15.04.6 couldn't render a vase.

I am using the robo 3d r1+ and octoprint


I checked the start gcode to make sure I saw the g29 auto level.

but when it went to print it did not execute the g29.

if fact it just started printing in mid air , at the height the nozzle happened to be at.


in cura 3.6 the default gcode flavor was marlin.

IN cura 15.04.6 the default gcode flavor was reprap(marlin/sprinter).


should I change the gcode flavor to reprap??

or is there something else causing this problem?

    • "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.
