Cura start gcode settings - Not


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura start gcode settings - Not

Hello,

I have made a custom gcode at start on the printer settings page. But upon reviewing the generated gcode after slicing, there seems to be additional lines of gcode added to it. Please see the attachments. Is there a way to edit? Or this is permanent in Cura? I am using version 4.8.0.

    I am having the exact same problem.  It is a problem because T0 is selected.  For a Duet board, the extruder will not move filament unless the hot end is above 100C(I think).  Here is what happens:

     

    Machine cold:

    T0 is selected, triggering the tool change macro that advances the filament 100mm past the Y adapter.

    filament advance command aborts because temperature too low.

    Filament is now 100mm before hot end, and brim of print is not completely printed.

     

    Machine hot:

    T0 is selected, triggering the tool change macro that advances the filament 100mm past the Y adapter.

    filament advance command is successful because hot end is above 100C because of previous print.

    Filament is correctly positioned and brim prints correctly.
