Split filament before printing start on RepRap Gcode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Split filament before printing start on RepRap Gcode

Hi,

When the printer is using its firmware settings (prints a UltiGCode model), before starting the print, the printer splits some filament.

When I print using RepRap GCode Flavor (because I want to customize more settings), the printing process starts immediately without any filament split. Do you have any idea how to make it split filament in this later case?

Thanks a lot.

You need to customize the start gcode to manually extrude the appropriate amount of filament before the print.

Note that you don't get any additional settings to customize by using the repRap gcode flavor - the settings are simply fixed in Cura, rather than being set on the printer.
