Anet A8 Marlin GCode with missing hotend temperature


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Anet A8 Marlin GCode with missing hotend temperature



for my Anet A8 I was using Cura 14.07 in the past which works well.

Now I wanted to retry to use an newer Cura version. So I downloaded Cura 4.6.1.


Of course I tried newer Cura versions in the past (last I tried version 4.3.something). At this time Anet was not supported from scratch and I had to set my own properties for "Custom printer" but I got it never to work. In the newest version I happliy realized Anet A8 is listed in the supported printers.


The only issue I have is my Hoteend will not be adressed with a target temparature. (remains at 0)


When I replace the header of the 4.6.1 GCode with the header of 14.07 GCode evertything is fine.


I attachted a (working) Cura 14.07 version and a 4.6.1 version.


I can't see the issue, because in both versions Command

M109 is executed.


In the 14.07 Version a specific target is defined

M109 T0 S185.000000


But obviously there are some other differences. When I add "T0" to the 4.6.1 GCode command it still remains on zero for target temparature.


Any help is appreciated.


Thank you




(This are two different Models. So don't wonder about the size)


Cura_4.6.1.gcode Cura_14.07.gcode

        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.
