How to place first extruder start code before machine start code


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to place first extruder start code before machine start code

I’ve added a second extruder and am using a single hotend and with a y-splitter in the bowden tube for color changes. Now I want Cura to call the first tool start g-code and then execute the purge command I have in the start g-code so I’ve added {machine_extruder_start_code} in the machine start g-code which executed the extruder start g-code as intended. The problem I’m having is that Cura is also running it again after the machine start code so it’s trying to advance my extruder that has just been primed 115mm essentially grinding the filament. I’ve tried running it without my custom purge line and upping the number of skirt lines but I end up with bits of filament coming off the nozzle which causes the skirt to stick to the nozzle ruining my first layer. I really don’t want to have to manually remove it on every part, there’s gotta be something I’m missing.

      (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.
