Printer &/or Extruder GCODE Sidewinder X1 help?

Posted · Printer &/or Extruder GCODE Sidewinder X1 help?

Hi - I'm using a Sidewinder X1 & CURA 4.5.  I am still learning everything about CURA & Printing.  This is my 1st post, but I have been reading posts here for a bit.


I  know my bed has a slight warp, so I installed Mat's  

EZY3D LAB1 MBL upgrade.  The install all looks good, but the printer still makes hay.  I noticed CURA 4.5 has printer & extruder Start & End GCODE.  Should the start GCODE be the same for the printer & the extruder?  This is the GCode that Mat sent me, I have the same script in the printer & extruder start gcode.
