Explanation of "end gcode" for Anet A8 - Cura 4.5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Explanation of "end gcode" for Anet A8 - Cura 4.5

I'm running into a slight issue with Cura 4.5's Anet A8 profile (thank you VERY much for including it)


So on print end - the following gcode is executed:


M104 S0
M140 S0
G92 E80
G1 E-80 F2000
G28 X0 Y0


Cura 4.5 is a MARKED improvement over the previous 4.x releases. Application is very stable and starts reliably now. Upon finishing a print yesterday, I heard an interesting noise (not bad just unexpected) of the extruder retracting on completion.


Today I went to run a print and kicked it off. I look over after the print completed and noticed nothing had printed out at all. I figured my filament got stuck (not remembering hearing the retract). I tried pulling out the filament manually only to have it get stuck. I let everything cool down and unbolted the cooling fan on the extruder body. Sure enough, there was a nice glob at the end of the filament below the hobbed gear.


I think the retraction setting is a bit excessive.


Any suggestions to tune this?


Thanks in advance.

    I think I solved this with the help of another post and github



    M104 S0
    M140 S0
    G92 E0            ; Zero the extruder position
    G1 E-10 F2000     ; Retract 10mm instead of 80mm / Feed rate 2000
    G28 X0 Y0

      • 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
