MatterControl Start Code

  • Global Moderator

    I have modified my start code for the Pulse XE printer. I found the original short purge strip to not be adequate enough for purging any degraded plastic in the hotend before printing. Normally a skirt will use up any material which is not pushed out on the purge line, however I try to not use skirts while printing if I have already set the printer to correct nozzle height. Therefore I have modified the start code to purge the entire length of the print bed, twice.

    G1 X5 Y0 Z0.8 F1800 ; Start position
    G92 E0 ; Purge line
    G1 X230 Z0.3 E25 F600 ; End position
    G92 E0 ; Purge line
    G1 E-2 F2400 ; Retract

    G1 X5 Y5 Z0.8 F1800 ; Start position 5mm over
    G92 E0 ; Purge line
    G1 X230 Z0.3 E25 F600
    G92 E0
    G1 E-2 F2400
