Extruder motor won't stop ''idle hold'' during the print.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Extruder motor won't stop ''idle hold'' during the print.

I am working on a new project. Making a plasma cutter that works on cura. Now the only problem i still have is that the motor won't stop idle hold during the ''print'' cut. I checked this and it is not a firmware problem but the problem is in de g-code generator. This is the g code cura produce if i have two cirkels of 2 cm diameter. As you can see from the beginning untill the end, E is constantly called even if it doesnt need to extrude. I have the retract settings disabled, skirt is disabled, infill is disabled, no fix horrible and at black magic only mesh surface is enabled. If i manually delete all the E codes that are not needed everything works fine. Sorry for the bad english.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
