Flashforge Guider II Profile


Recommended Posts

Posted · Flashforge Guider II Profile

Hi

Is there an update that has a Flashforge Guider II preset profile that I could use as I am new to 3D printing and wouldn't know where to start creating my own.

Cura has come to me highly recommended and would like to use it to its maximum capabilities. (eventually) Therefore need a perfect setup before I start. I have an iMac running on Monterey using an i5 processor.

Thanking everyone in advance

    Hi,

    I've made a Cura v5 profile for Flashforge Guider 2s (for PLA)

     

    What I did: Used Flashprint made some g-code for PLA and saved it. Opened the file in a text editor examined it

    and found start and end code sections. Added these into Cura start and stop code for the specific printer.

     

    BTW: Selected code flavour "Griffin" (something I picked up during my search for others settups)

     

    Be aware:

     

    The temperature settings are "hidden"/fixed in this code so if You decide to go for another

    material do the same again. Flashforge printer dose not read decimal temperatur settings.

     

    Examine each step in the start/end G-code be sure You understand/each step! Any peculiarities

    try to find explanantion (on the net) or ask Flashforge.

     

    How it works: Do Your the slicing in Cura, save sliced G-code fliename.g. Open it in Flashprint and send

    to printer.

     

    Flashprint has it's good sides and bad like Cura, no slicer are perfect.
