Change print start sequence?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Change print start sequence?

Right now when starting a print cura heats up to full print temp, then starts auto levelling, then starts print. This results in loss of filament due to the filament drooping from the nozzle. Is there a way to do it like PrusaSlicer does? Prime nozzle to 120° > start autolevelling sequence > Raise nozzle a little and move nozzle to X-Y home for nozzle prime line > raise temp to desired print temp > print prime line > start print?


That way no filament drooping occurs as the nozzle doesn't reach full temp until AFTER it went through the Autolevelling sequence (BLTouch)

    The commands are in your start gcode.  Something like this would do it.  It is the order of the commands and the use of keywords that are important.

    M104 S120

    M140 S60

    M109 S120

    M190 S60

    G28 X Y


    M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}

    M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}

    while doing some research, shouldn't M109 (wait for hotend temperature) be used in combo with M104 (set hotend temperature), i can read but understanding things is a different matter
