Cura issue for my setup (Or am I doing something wrong)

Recommended Posts


I have a small issue with Cura (or maybe its skeinforge).

Start G code does not come at the beginning of the file.

This always comes first:-


M92 E865.888000

M109 S210.000000.

The problem I have is that I do not want heating at that point. I am trying to adopt something similar to this strategy:-

I want to control initial heat up in start g code.

If it were M104 I could kill it in the first line of my start g code with M104 S0 but of course the M109 holds everything until you are up to temperature.

Is there a work around for this?

Yes, you can!

In all versions, the M109 is not added if you set the temperature to 0 in Cura.

In RC3 you can add "tags" in the start/end code. If the {print_temperature} tag is found in the start code, then Cura won't add the M109 because it assumes you set the temperature in the start code yourself. The {print_temperature} tag is replaced with the configured temperature in Cura.

(If you do not want the M92, then you can set the steps-per-e to 0 in the preferences, this will remove that line)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
