Start gcode ignored when starting prints via wifi on an MKS board based printer

Posted (edited) · Start gcode ignored when starting prints via wifi on an MKS board based printer

Hi I'm new in the forums and hoping for help : )


I am using Cura as my go to slicer for a heavily modified Creality Ender 3 printer. When I swapped the original board for an MKS GEN V1.4 with the TFT35 touch screen I had the option to add wifi to the printer, which I did shortly after. I installed the hardware module, downloaded the plugin for Cura and at first everything seemed to work perfectly fine - I could send gcode commands, jog the printer and set temperatures, all through Cura as expected. 


However when sending a print over, Cura seems not to include the starting gcode as my printer just starts moving and tries to print without prior homing, heating up or anything else from the starting gcode. 


I searched the forums but couldn't find anything. When exporting the gcode directly to my files instead of sending it to the printer the Start Gcode is included, just when I send it it seems missing. Checked that with Repetier-Host too. 


Hope anyone has ideas, thank you in advance!
