Feature suggestion: Sound just before nozzle is fully heated

Posted · Feature suggestion: Sound just before nozzle is fully heated

Hi,

Just a beep say 5 seconds before the printer actually starts printing. I always want to grab the string that comes out so that it won't melt on the nozzle or create a bump. At the moment I'm throwing myself at the printer when the head starts moving, cause I don't have the attention span to sit and wait for the nozzle to heat up :)

    Hi, sorry for the late reply, that sounds good, but can't find the start gcode tab? I'm using 14.01, and there's nothing beside the Plugins tab..

    Because you obviously have an UM2 and the (very reasonable) setting 'UltiGCode' for the 'flavour' in the machine settings (cf. my post above).

    Interesting stuff :) i have to start playing with gcode a bit it looks quite fun.

    Does it change anything in terms of quality?

    Ah, yes, I'm one of them new casual users, we never read text that is put in brackets.. Ok, I tried that but I didn't get any sound, but I think it waited for awhile.. but then it started extruding way too slow..

    Hmm. Somewhere on these forums is how to get the UM2 to print in "rep rap" mode. There's a couple tricks - it's very simple but there something.... I forget. Sorry.

    This is the start G code I have in cura in order to know when the machine is heated

    ;Sliced at: {day} {date} {time}

    ;Basic settings: Layer height: {layer_height} Walls: {wall_thickness} Fill: {fill_density}

    ;Print time: {print_time}

    ;Filament used: {filament_amount}m {filament_weight}g

    ;Filament cost: {filament_cost}

    M190 S{print_bed_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature line

    ;M109 S{print_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own temperature line

    M300 S1000 P1000

    M300 S900 P500

    M300 S800 P250

    M300 S700 P125

    M300 S600 P125

    M300 S400 P75

    M300 S300 P37

    M300 S200 P500

    M300 S1000 P9

    G4 P3000

    G21 ;metric values

    G90 ;absolute positioning

    M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode

    M107 ;start with the fan off

    G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

    G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

    G1 Z15.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm

    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

    G1 F200 E7 ;extrude 7mm of feed stock

    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

    G1 F{travel_speed}

    ;Put printing message on LCD screen

    M117 UltiMaking...

     

     

    The bold part of the Gcode Makes a kind of music sound, then pauses three seconds (where I check that there is enough material about to extrude), and then starts the procedure to do a print.
