Hi All,

After finally getting my BLTouch setup (much thanks to William for the replacement board and all the help :) -- I did a bit of searching on how to include the autobed leveling in my cura start up script, and even figured out how to get it to start pre-heating the bed WHILE the bedlevling is happening. So I figured I'd share it to save people the trouble.

Here is my CURA startup script for the A20T with BLTouch.. for single color / multi-color (not mixing) to preheat the bed while it's automatically leveling -- Use it exactly -- DO NOT replace the words in curly brackets those are variables the script pulls from Cura itself.

Code: Select all

M140 S{material_bed_temperature} ; start preheating the bed WITHOUT wait to what is set in Cura
M280 P0 S160 ; BLTouch alarm release

G4 P100 ; delay for BLTouch
G28 ; home
G29 ; auto bed leveling

M190 S{material_bed_temperature} ; start heating the bed to what is set in Cura
M109 S{material_print_temperature} T0 ; start heating T0 to what is set in Cura

G1 Z15.0 F6000 ;Move the platform down 15mm
;Prime the extruder

Aside I tried to get it to preheat the End while it was bed-leveling as well... but that didn't work. I suspect it draws too much power.
