cura 4.0 and repetierServer pro 0.91.2 - cura: g-code flavor repetier : Firmware - Settings??

Recommended Posts

Posted · cura 4.0 and repetierServer pro 0.91.2 - cura: g-code flavor repetier : Firmware - Settings??

What I understand :
cura 4.0 has many options under machine settings -> for the parameter: "g-code flavor"  e.g.  ultimaker , reprap , marlin


RepetierServer has only a few  under Firmware : e.g. marlin , reprap

Both settings must be equal ,  so UM2+ starts printing .

 

I tested both values "marlin" and "reprap" cura 4.0 . the result is UM2+ starts printing but the filament gets entangled. 

the filament wraps around the nozzle.


the same file sliced with g-code "ulitmaker" and saved on SD card works fine

Question

  • Which option/parameter  did you choose for Cura and Repetier so that the result is the same like I'm just working with the SD card ?
  • And what is the startcode so that the filament comes out of the nozzle already before ?  when you chosse g-code marlin/reprap you have to put the code in the startcript, when you choose ultimaker in the g-code the UM2+  Firmware will do ist for you

Regards

For one, I think you have to choose "marlin" when you use host software like RepetierServer.

marlin, reprap and ultimaker 2 here, are something like dialects of a language. They are all gcodes but, there are a few differences.

 

As you have figured out, when you choose ultimaker 2, the start procedure is handled by the firmware.

The same behavior could not be achieved when using host software since it's now the host sending gcode one by one to the printer. While there is no "start", so the firmware doesn't know when to do the start procedure. Therefore the start has to be done by the slicing software or host software.

 

When changed to Marlin, Cura has a default start script. You could use that as a base and tweak to the behavior as your liking.
