Not sure if Cura software peeps read these posts but I'd like when I press Preview to see the "test" line that is printed (Ender3 and CR10).  Once in a while my  print walks over that line and things get fused.  I do not want to remove the line, I like it 🙂

    It's in the "Start Gcode" so Cura can't really show it in preview because Cura doesn't develop it (and I wouldn't want Cura playing with my personal settings).

    After you save the file to Gcode you can open that Gcode file in Cura and it will show up.  If it is interfering with the print, you could then go into the Gcode file and comment out (;) the G1 lines in the startup section and get rid of it for just that print.

    The position of the first lines changed during different versions of Cura... I like to maximize my buildvolume, so I moved these lines closer to the edge of the buildplate... sometimes I remove the line directly after it is printed 😉. Compare your Start G-code with the part of my G-code!

      • 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.
