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)
