A way to stop Cura touching center of plate


Recommended Posts

Posted · A way to stop Cura touching center of plate

Is there a way to tell Cura to not touch the center of the build plate before going over and extruding the line over at the far left of the build plate? When it touches the center, it leaves a bit of filament that doesn't look good if I forget to catch and remove before the actual print job starts. If I move the object so it's not on the center of the plate then this isn't a problem but when I have a lot of items to print, that isn't always an easy thing to do.


Thanks in advance,

    For a non-Ultimaker printer it's likely something in your StartUp Gcode.  Post a problem Gcode file here.  

    To check for yourself, go to Manage Printers and Machine Settings and check the StartUp Gcode.  After the G28 homing move the nozzle should move to put the purge lines down on the left, or move directly to start the skirt/brim/raft.  There should not be a G0 or G1 move to the midpoint.
