Cura generated code on CR-10; heats only bed and not nozzle; doesn't print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura generated code on CR-10; heats only bed and not nozzle; doesn't print

Using Cura, I select my printer, CR-10 (1.1.6), the correct flavor, Merlin, verify that I have a temperature of 205 for the nozzle and 60 for the bed, and slice the file and save as gcode.

When I attempt to print, the nozzle will heat correctly, but the temperature set point for the bed remains a 0.  As a result, the print doesn't start.

 

I reloaded an older gcode file that was generated by the way too basic Creality slicer, and it worked fine; so at least it isn't a hardware issue.

 

What can I do to troubleshoot or fix?

 

thanks

    Hi @geoffhobe can you share your gcode? 

    Or search in the gcode for M140 and M190 and see if it is in there or it has a value.

    I don't see an Mq40 nor M190.  I do see what appears rot be comment fields that do call out the temperatures that I'm expecting.  Here's a screen shot ( I think) of the first part of the code.

    In line 3 you see ;FLAVOR: Griffon.  The CR10 has "Marlin" firmware.  Marlin does not support G280 which is specific to Ultimaker printers and that may be where your print is hanging.

    In Cura, click on your printer, select Manage Printers and then Machine Settings.  On the left under Printer Settings there is a box for G-code Flavor.  Set the flavor to "Marlin" then slice the model and look at the gcode.  You should see a "G140" and "G190" lines like this:

    Made a lot of progress.  Saved using Marlin.  Gcode had the lines you were referring too.  First homed the printer (to the corner of the bed).  Loaded gcode into printer; the printer first heated the bed and then the nozzle perfectly.  When it came time for motion, it move to near the middle of the bed where my project should start to print.  At that point, motion stopped.  Interestingly, the time on the control panel stops counting up too; progress remains at 0%.  Gcode coming up next...

    @geoffhobe - Use the "File | Save Project" command and save the Cura project as a 3mf file and post it here.  Your Gcode isn't showing any CR-10 start-up gcode and there is no G28 so the printer doesn't know where the print head is.

    If you look at line 7 of your original gcode screenshot you see that the printer is an Ultimaker S5 though you state you have a CR-10.

     

    My suggestion is to start again.  I'm attaching a project file with the active printer a plain Jane CR10.  It has the standard Start-Up Gcode from the printer definition file.  When you open the file you will have an option to update your current CR10, or to add a new CR10.  "Add New" just in case.  Slice the file (Benchy) and try to print it.  If it starts and is printing OK you can abort the print.
