Z-axis blocks on start of print Cura 13.06.4

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have been using the older versions of cura for my printing without any issues.

But i recently updated to the new version 13.06.4.

This gives me an issue when the print starts.

BTW I have a Prusa i3.

The z-axis will home and then lift 15mm from the platform. In the older versions this was done at a reasonable speed, but in the new this is done by 20 times the speed, resulting in the steppers not moving at all.

I can still use the older versions of Cura.

The line in the gcode that does the damage is this:

G1 Z15.0 F2400 ;move the platform down 15mm

In the older versions of Cura that line would be for example:

G1 Z15.0 F120 ;move the platform down 15mm

So F120 just became F2400 resulting in the loss of steps.

I have googled and also did a search on z-axis in this forum without any result.

How do I fix this problem?

Regards Nic

    • "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.
