Cool Head Lift Gcode Help

Recommended Posts

Hi

I Know absolutely nothing about Gcode but for a part Im printing I would like the cool head lift to act a certain way.

1, I would like the Z axis to move down and have no sideways movement.

2, the cool head lift time is defined by the minimum layer time. I would like to start this feature by the minimum layer time. but also set the time that the z axis has moved away from the print.

For example: If the minimum layer time is 10 sec and it prints for 2 seconds, then cool head lift will be away for 8 seconds. I would like to be able to adjust the 8 seconds.

If i adjust the minimum layer time then the cool head lift will be start at a different part of the print and not where I want it to start.

Hope this is clear and if you can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Its Ok

Xisle Helped me understand the code so I can modify it manually and then he even wrote me a little python program to modify the code automatically.

All credit to him and now I can get the printer to do what I want and the quality is greatly improved.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
