Cura 5.1.1 Start gcode


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 5.1.1 Start gcode

Hi I am new to Cura I am trying to maximize my print times and I change my start gcode in Cura but for some reason when I slice and go to print the bed temp and nozzle temp go way to high but if I save the gcode then manual edit the start gcode it runs fine.


 This is the start gcode I would like to run


; Ender 3 Custom Start G-code
M117 Pre-heating the extruder!
M104 S170; start warming extruder to 170
M140 S60{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Set Heat Bed temperature
M190 S60{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Wait for Heat Bed temperature
G28 ; Home all axes
G29 A ; Activate bed mesh -level (CR-Touch)
G29 L0 ; Load mesh from slot 0
G29 J3 ; Probe for bed tilt
G1 X245 Y218.5 Z1 F5000.0
G92 E0 ; Reset extruder
M104 S215{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; Set Extruder temperature
M109 S215{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; Wait for Extruder temperature
G1 Z1.0 F3000 ; move z up little to prevent scratching of surface
G1 X225 Y200 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; move to start-line position
G1 X225 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15 ; draw 1st line
G1 X222.2 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; move to side a little
G1 X222.2 Y200 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; draw 2nd line
G92 E0 ; reset extruder
G1 Z1.0 F3000 ; move z up little to prevent scratching of surface
; End of custom start GCode

    A line like this:

    M140 S60{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Set Heat Bed temperature

    is wrong.  What is happening is Cura is adding your bed temperature and so the line becomes

    M140 S6060

    and the hot end becomes

    M104 S215215

    Which is probably a tad on the warm side.


    So change those 4 lines that have the replacement words in them and remove the numbers after the "S"

    M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}

    M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}

    Your M104 S170 line is fine since nothing gets added too it and the nozzle shouldn't ooze at 170.

      • 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
