Honestly, I don't understand the script. In the comments it says "all used Extruder", but in the commands T0 is hardcoded. I only know Cura so far, but there are different tools with different Tx names, i.e. T0 to T7.

I don't understand the meaning of a script like that either, if I'm honest. In Cura the start code is inserted behind the temperature settings of the slicer. Even if the script would insert the current temperatures for bed and material, it would at best double the temperature assignments. In the worst case, it will cause the temperature assignments to be wrong.

It may be that other slicers work differently and it makes sense. As I said, I'm not familiar with that yet, I've only been working with 3D printing for a few weeks. But I don't think it makes any sense in a Cura profile.

Hi.
:mrgreen:

Don't worry about it. ;)
This is just an example of how a script can be made more universal. Of course it may not be compatible with every Slicer.

And as you've noticed, this script is not perfect. :D

OK, got it :D

To be honest, I find the collaboration between Cura and the A10M somewhat sobering.
However, I also understand Cura's position, who doesn't want to spend money on a development that supports cheaper hardware from the competitors.

But no matter, I'm doing my own postprocessing script now. At least I know what it does, even if not everything will be perfect in the beginning :D

Can we please make this post visible somewhere central as it also has other printer profiles in it (Like my A30M).

After applying the profiles the print quality is AMAZING and only found this post by chance.

Thanks, Marius
