I have the wanhao duplicator 6 / Ultimate 2
Using Ultimaker Cura 4.8.0
Changed from Wanhao Duplicator 6 printer profile that used Marlin to now trying the default Ultimaker 2+ profile that uses Ultimaker 2 G-code flavor.
The new profile does seem to print smoother prints and seems to be a little better.... but
When the printer starts a print, it now raises the bed, finds Z 0 point. But from there it DRAGS the nozzle .5 inches diagonally to the middle and rests the nozzle on the bed while the bed heats up and then while the nozzle heats up.
I would like to find Z 0 then drop the bed several mm, say 5mm, and then either warm up the bed and nozzle or move to this point. I want to eliminate the nozzle drag... anyone know what i need to put in the start g-code to get it to lower the bed prior to the move after the Z home?
EDIT: this nozzle drag is unique to the new default printer setting in Cura. The wanhao duplicator 6 with marlin did not drag the nozzle... so I dont know if this is built in the printer or if this is cura. I know that using the "Ultimaker 2" G-code flavor it uses a lot of the printer defaults, like i cannot change the material temp or retraction distance to name a few.
