[FEATURE][IM-3.1]G-Code Change

Postby WTFMacca » Mon Feb 19, 2018 10:55 am

Title: Change G Code where heat setting are mare
Version: 3.1
Operation System: OXS
Reason: To not have to edit every Gcode file created for use with induction heated probes.
Printer: Custom i3 Clone running marlin.
Description:

When Ideamaker creates Gcode, Hotend and Bed temps are created in lines 12-17
M140 S60.00
M104 T0 S210.00
M109 T0 S210.00
T0
M190 S60.00
M107 ;turn off fan


Then and custom Gcode is added after this eg
M117 Auto Level
G28 X0 Y0 Z0 ; home X, Y and Z axis end-stops
G29 ; Auto Level


The issue arises for those who use inductive auto level probes. They don't like any heat when probing, heat causes the probe to give erroneous results.

So I have added my probe and bet heating code into the custom G code area, and have to manually edit every gcode file and delete the initial heat commands, so the bed can perform an auto level before any heat is applied.

M117 Auto Level
G28 X0 Y0 Z0 ; home X, Y and Z axis end-stops
G29 ; Auto Level
M104 S210 ; Hotend to 210 deg
M190 S60 ; wait for 60deg on bed
M109 S210 ; wait Hotend to 210 deg
G0 X0 Y0 F9000 ; Go to front
G0 Z0.15 ; Drop to bed
G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length
G1 X50 E22.5 F500 ; Extrude 50mm of filament in a 8cm line
G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length
G1 E-1 F500 ; Retract a little
G1 X80 F4000 ; Quickly wipe away from the filament line
G1 Z5 F5000 ; lift nozzle
M117 Printing...


So my suggestion would be to add the heating commands after the custom gcode is created opposed to before.
(I had a heap of failed first and second layers when probing while heating the bed)

Thanks Ideamaker team!

You can uncheck this option. And edit the start codes above to be the ones in order you need. Then ideaMaker will stop inserting default heating code into start code any more with this option disabled.

Well thanks Vicky, that was rather easy.
Is that a new feature, or has it always been there?
Totally kicking myself for not noticing, been using ideamaker for many months editing the G code and now, perfect lol
