Start, End Gcode.

Post by Steveo86 » Sun Feb 24, 2019 1:19 am

i was wondering if anybody would be willing to help me write a start and end gcode for my geeetech a10 i'm using cura. i have a bltouch so would like to have bed levelling in it and working. i've tried but when my print moves from a purge line to the main print it doesn't seem to be in the correct position for printing as nothing sticks and i end up with a big blob of filament on my hotend and i have to stop the print

Here is my gcode from Slic3r. You need to change variables inside for your slicer software.

Use at least 3 skirt circles in your slicer software.


Code: Select all

M117 Preheating... 
M140 S[first_layer_bed_temperature]  ; and continue
M109 S150      ; partial hotend temp and wait
M117 Auto leveling;
;M420 S1
G29 V3; run auto level
M117 full heating... 
M104 S[first_layer_temperature]      ; set final hotend temp and continue
G28                                  ; go to HOME
G1 X12 Y5 Z1 F300
G1 X12 Y5 Z0 F300           ; stop leaking hotend
M109 S[first_layer_temperature]      ; final hotend temp and wait for it
M190 S[first_layer_bed_temperature]  ; and wait for it
M117 Priming
M300 S500 P200  ; beep

G90                                  ; absolute position
G21                                  ; milimeters
G92 E0                               ; position E0
M83                                  ; 
G1 Z0.4 F1000.0                      ; 
G1 X12.0 Y5.0 F1000.0
G1 Y68.0 E15.0 F1000.0
G1 Y115.0 E22 F1000.0
G1 E-7 F2400  ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle  to release some of the pressure
G1 Z0.5 F1000.0                      ; 
G92 E0
M117 Printing...
M900 K240 ; for bowden extruder only, A10M


Code: Select all

M117 Finished printing. ;Put printing message on LCD screen

G91 ;relative positioning
G1 E-7 F2400  ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle  to release some of the pressure
G1 Z+0.5 X-20 Y-20 F9000 ;move Z up a bit

G28 X ;move X to min endstops so the head is out of the way

M104 S0 ;extruder heater off
M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)

G28 Y ;move Y to min endstops so the head is out of the way
G1 Y200 F6000  ;
M84 ;steppers off
M0 H.O.T.O.V.O.

A10M Slic3r profile: here and fresh on github (lot of tips here)
A10 Slic3r profile: here
TIP: tight all screws and wheels (except right side of Z axis) and re-align frame while assembly. And silence it.
