Cura 4.2 Start G-Code Creality CR-20 (PRO)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.2 Start G-Code Creality CR-20 (PRO)



Just installed Cura 4.2 (upgraded from 4.1 where this was working) and found out that the Start G-Code is not used as a start any more.

The following lines had been set BEFORE my custom start code, which are heating the bed and the hotend, which is kind of bad doing so before the Start G-Code...


Lines in sliced file before "Start G-Code" :

;Filament used: 1.10656m
;Layer height: 0.12
;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 4.2.0
M140 S65
M190 S65
M104 S210
M109 S210
M82 ;absolute extrusion mode


and here start the lines entered in the Start G-Code field of the printer...

Which makes it kind of useless.


How can this be turned off ???

    ok found the solution...


    you have to have these EXACT sequences somewhere in the start g code, only M190 or M109 is not sufficient...


    M140 S{material_bed_temperature}


    M190 S{material_bed_temperature} 


    M104 S{material_print_temperature}


    M109 S{material_print_temperature}
