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.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
