Insetring Cura Start/End code into Slic3r G-code

Posted · Insetring Cura Start/End code into Slic3r G-code

I like the way Slic3r handles support structure, so I wanted to printusing those settings. The first time, I just used Slic3r's gcode, and my printer freaked out on me.

The second time, I did a bit of research first and seen that the most common thing to do is to just copy and replace the start and end code from cura into the slic3r g-code. This sort of worked, but when it started to print, no filament came out.

Does anyone know why that would be and how to fix it?

    The same thing happened. This is the G-code I just tried using(minus most of the code in the middle)

    I don't think Slic3r can generate "UltiGCode".

    Also, the M109 and S220 should be on the same line.

    It can't. I just deleted what was there and put the Starting Code from Cura's Gcode generation. Comments and everything. and okay,I'll try that out when I get home.

    Nothing different happened. The Material feeder isn't moving at all, and the temp is where it needs to be.

    sure that the feeder isn't moving at all?

    We have similar problem here and recognized thet the E values are only very small. In your code you can see also a small value : G1 X89.409 Y90.985 E0.00593 F1260.000

    . We have E-increments from line to line of about 0.007 hat is nearly nothing if compare to the code Cura generates under same settings with increments of about 0.5 from line to line what is about 71 times more.

    The UM2 does this hyper small increments usind the Slic3r code but of course it seems thet the extruder isn't moving.

    Any idea what might be the reason for this?

    Did you made any progress? I'm also very interested in using Slic3r for Ultimaker2

    not yet, I don't like to talk something being a bug but here I really have to ask how to fix. Did anyone got in touch with the guys making the Slic3r? If there is a guy in charge to talk to I'ii give it a try

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
