G-code custom formula in the CURA start code


Recommended Posts

Posted · G-code custom formula in the CURA start code


I print with 0.2 and 0.15 nozzles with CURA 4.0.0. The few cool filament remaining in the nozzle at start tends to generate on  the next print an under-extrusion or worse a clogging. I eliminate this problem  by extruding -before each new print- 5cms at the first layer temperature + 15 °c.

In the same spirit, I fully retract the filament at the end of each print : G1 E-160 F600 … again with an extrudeur T° set at first layer temperature +15°.

It works perfectly and I have no more worries.

I set both higher T° manually in my start/end g_codes but have to update them  at each first layer T° change (filament change).

In the start/end g_code, the formula  M104 S {material_print_temperature_layer_0}  to obtain a T ° equal to the first layer T° defined in CURA 4.0.0 profile works fine.

But how to increase it by + 15 ° ?

I tried unsuccessfully various formulas: M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0 + 15} or M104 S {material_print_temperature_layer_0    +15}, or M104 S{(material_print_temperature_layer_0) +15} or M104 S {material_print_temperature_layer_0 * 1.1}

None works.

Any suggestion ?

Many tks

      • 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
