Edit/create gcode question

Posted · Edit/create gcode question

Sorry, I'm not an Ultimaker owner.Two years ago ( when I was 80 )  I decided to start with 3D printing as my new hobby. Recently  I stopped using the Repetier-Host and started to use Cura 4.2.1 and I would be very grateful to get some help.

Since  started to use Cura 4.2.1 I can not edit, to add a G code....., and hope to find here the help I'm looking for.

Best Regards,

Abraham Gome

    Hi @abrgome I've created a new topic for you in the correct sub-category (Cura). This increases the chances of someone reading your question who knows the answer. Perhaps, in the meantime, you can elaborate a little bit on your question. 

    Is Cura not producing gcodes, or do you not know how to do it? 


    Thank you,

    Thanks for your prompt reaction. Those days I voluntired to print a part for a face sheild  fused by the coronavirus fighters using an STL file I received. The problem is that when printing ends the nozzle is near fo touching the surface of the print and makes difficult to remove the part. I'm interested to add/change the last Gcode before printing stops so, the hotbed will move 20 - 30 mm from the  product surface. I do not know how to see the "Gcode edit" window.

    Your kind help will be more than appreciated.

      • 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
