How do you edit GCODE?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How do you edit GCODE?

I recently saw something about how to edit your print settings so after the print is finished the 3d printing extruder moves to a certain coordinate and therefore triggers a noise to tell you that your print is done, the video is here:


  I was wondering is this possible to do in cura?

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm new to this 3d printing thing....

    If you want to change the behavior at the end of the print-job, then the End G-code section in Manage Printers (or the Printers pane of the Preferences)-> Machine Settings is the best place.

    If it is only for one print (e.g. to test it), you could manually edit the gcode-file in Notepad, Notepad++, or a similar plain-text editor.


    But be aware that if you insert wrong codes, you could make the head crashing into things and damage it. Or you could burn the plastic in the nozzle by heating it too hot for too long.

    M300 is the Marlin Beep command (very annoying) for the speaker on the printer only.

    For a remote system (as in the video) you would need to design the bracketry for the switch and any other thing that might be required.

    Much depends on your printer.  Whether it's a bed slinger, a fixed bed, or a delta would determine:  which axis you want to use to trip the switch, the placement the design of the bracketry, and possibly a trip dog for the switch.

    Then the End Gcode would be adjusted to tell the printer to move an axis to the switch.  It might have to pause for a second or two and then move away from the switch so as not to keep leaning on it.

      • 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...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
