v4.7.1 how to disable prime lines

In v4.7.1 how can I disable prime lines? (2 lines on side of the table before skirt)

Skirt is enough priming on my printer, more is just wasteful.


There is nothing relevant under 'Build plate adhesion'.

Searching for 'prime' also doesnt result much.

    I have never heard of this.  This sounds like a printer specific feature maybe? 


    Actually - it's almost certainly in machine settings.  Make sure you are in PREPARE mode and go to top left area where you can see your machine.  Click drop down and look at the machine settings.  In there is some start gcode.  That is probably where someone put the lines.  What kind of printer do you two have?

    @gr5 nailed it again.  Most of the Creality printers have the purge lines on the side.  They are in the startup gcode in your Machine Settings.

    This is from an Ender 3 but they are all similar.  You can delete the lines in bold or put a semi-colon in front of them to comment them out.  The first G1 line after homing is better with the Z at 10 or 12.

    G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder

    G28 ; Home all axes

    G1 Z12.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed

    G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position

    G1 X0.1 Y200.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15 ; Draw the first line

    G1 X0.4 Y200.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to side a little

    G1 X0.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the second line

    G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder

    G1 Z2.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed

    G1 X5 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move over to prevent blob squish

      • 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...

        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.
