Cura 5.1_Avoid useless G0 movements


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 5.1_Avoid useless G0 movements

Hi everyone,


I'm working on a brillant new project, developing a huge 3D printer (mt3x2xh2), working with pellet.

We use different type of extruders, from 2mm to 8mm, and expecially when we work with the biggest ones, we front an annoying result:

at the time of the Z movement, the code generates also a totally useless stripe with G0, here belw an exemple on a simple lay-out:


G1 F6000 X-497.5 Y497.5 W467.91259
G1 X497.5 Y497.5 W467.91259
G1 X497.5 Y0.00 W233.9563
G1 X497.5 Y-497.5 W233.9563
G1 X-497.5 Y-497.5 W467.91259
G0 F7200 X-497.5 Y-497.4
G0 F600 X-497.5 Y-497.4 Z4.2
G0 F7200 X-497.5 Y-497.5


the red stripes generate some movements on the printer giving up to an horrible seam (see the image attached).


In your incredible experience, do you think is possible to manage Cura in order to not exit with these stripes?


Thank you

        (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.
