Coasting without Wipe only works on Initial Layer?? (plus auto nozzle clean tip))

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Coasting without Wipe only works on Initial Layer?? (plus auto nozzle clean tip))

Hi all,

Is it correct/normal that Coasting only works above the Initial layer when you give a value >0 for Outer Wall Wipe Distance??

I thought I was completely silly, by printing a single wall test ring, just to tune the Coasting feature, constantly increasing the value of it.

And then I noticed the increasing gap in the Initial Layer, but above that nothing.

I also noticed it in Cura after slicing, but I hoped that was just a graphical bug.

That's a little bug, right?


By the way, for anyone who also ends up with some irritating little piece of filament that just always flips sideways to the nozzle at the start of the brim/skirt, and some poor priming, this is how I solved that perfectly (when always printing the same objects) on my Modix Big60:

M104 S250 ; Start heating the nozzle, without waiting
G28  ; Home all axes
G0 X0 Y15 Z30 F7200  ; Move to front edge and bed 60mm down
G0 Z45 ; Creating enough space for the messing brush to clean the nozzle super clean if needed
G92 E0  ; Zero the extruded length
M109 S250 ; Really wait for the nozzle to reach the right temperature
G1 E10 F1500 ; Extrude 10 mm of filament to prime the nozzle good
G1 E-1.5  ; Retract filament 1.5mm to reduce oozing
M0 Click to continue..  ; Wait till a button is clicked in case some extra cleaning is needed
G0 X265 Y220 Z2 F7200 E-0.5   ; Move somewhere close but outside the brim/skirt
G1 Z0.3 F1800 ; Lower the nozzle straight down to printing height
G1 E2.2 F600 ; Extrude to make a good blob that sticks well to the amount that might have already oozed out
M0 S2 ; Wait 2 seconds to stick well to the bed
G1 X265 Y240 E4 F600 ; extrude a fat line (1.6mm approx) to leave the bad start behind

This leaves my nozzle 100% clean at each start.

Maybe useful for someone..

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
