Nozzle resting on finished prints

  • I'm using 2 X Me3d Me2 printers with the printer profiles applied for this model.

    The issue I'm having is that when a print finishes (doesn't matter which printer or the size of the print) the print head raise on the z axis and the hot nozzle instead just rests on the completed print destroying it.

    Normally on other software once finished it will lift and rear back at the home setting. I'm not really sure what to do as everything else works great.

    I'm a teacher and these are school printers. I have had massive issues with all other software and matter control has been great. Except this final issue of course. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    @flyingmoose99 If you open MatterControl and navigate to your printer tab and then the G-Code tab, you will find manually entered gcode. Your End Gcode should look something like this:

    G1 E-[retract_length] F[retract_speed]
    G0 X5 Y215 F[travel_speed] ; Moves hotend to X5 and pushes bed forward
    G1 Z200 ; Retract and move away <----

    M104 S0 ; turn off temperature
    M140 S0 ; turn off heat bed
    M106 S0 ; turn off layer fan
    M84 ; disable motors
