Posted · Cura adds code before printer start g-code

I designed this start g-code for my new klipper installation, Cura version 5.7.2:

 

M104 S170
M105
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}
M105
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder

BED_MESH_CALIBRATE

G1 Z10.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed
G1 X0 Y0

M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}
M105
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}
M105

G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position
G1 X0.1 Y200.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15 ; Draw the first line
G1 X0.4 Y200.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to side a little
G1 X0.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the second line
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G1 Z2.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed
G1 X5 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move over to prevent blob squish

 

So that I can begin heating the hotend to idle temperature (170 ºC), wait for the bed to heat up, calibrate the mesh and then wait for both hotend and bed (just in case) to heat up.

But when I generate the g-code, it inserts extra temperature codes, M104 S215, M105, M109 S215:

 

;FLAVOR:Marlin
;TIME:16242
;Filament used: 22.5059m
;Layer height: 0.2
;MINX:49.99
;MINY:12.938
;MINZ:0.2
;MAXX:149.629
;MAXY:87.085
;MAXZ:65.4
;TARGET_MACHINE.NAME:Creality Ender-3 S1
;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 5.7.2
M104 S215
M105
M109 S215
M82 ;absolute extrusion mode
M104 S170
M105
M190 S60
M105
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder

BED_MESH_CALIBRATE

G1 Z10.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed
G1 X0 Y0

M190 S60
M105
M109 S215.0
M105

G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position
G1 X0.1 Y200.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15 ; Draw the first line
G1 X0.4 Y200.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to side a little
G1 X0.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the second line
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G1 Z2.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed
G1 X5 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move over to prevent blob squish

 

I saw other posts suggesting that I should add {material_bed_temperature_layer_0} and {material_print_temperature_layer_0}, so to test it I tried the following starting g-code, which in theory should prevent the extra codes from being generated:

 

M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}
M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} 
M104 S170
M105
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}
M105
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder

BED_MESH_CALIBRATE

G1 Z10.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed
G1 X0 Y0

M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0}
M105
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}
M105

G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position
G1 X0.1 Y200.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15 ; Draw the first line
G1 X0.4 Y200.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to side a little
G1 X0.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the second line
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G1 Z2.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed
G1 X5 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move over to prevent blob squish

 

But still, this was the g-code output:

 

;FLAVOR:Marlin

;Layer height: 0.2

How can I prevent these extra temperature codes from being generated?

    This issue has already been well documented and the developers are aware of it. I don't keep an eye on the tickets in the Cura GitHub repo but the 5.8 beta should be coming soon and hopefully have this issue fixed.

     

    In the meantime, I wrote a post-processing script you can just add to your projects and it'll automatically strip those lines.
