Change purge procedure

Postby DurrtySteve » Tue Sep 15, 2020 4:38 pm

Is it possible to change the purge line procedure on the E2? Sometimes when printing the purge line at the front of the bed before a print, the nozzle gouges the build plate. The Z offset for the rest of the print is great. Is there away to raise the Z height of the purge line or do have it purge off the edge of the bed like the N2 does?

The reason why we leave it at the front is when printing Duplicate Mode, purge line won't take extra printing space.
If the Z iff too low, you can increase the Z value for Purge Line in Start Gcode.

I'm not seeing any Gcode to edit. Is it within the RaiseTouch firmware?

If I go to Printer Settings > Advanced and check the "Omit RaiseTouch Specified Gcode" could I enter custom Gcode in the "End of Start Gcode" box? I'd just like to copy and paste the standard starting gcode but increase the Z height for the purge.

You can find it under any slicing template, Advanced Settings -> Gcode -> Start GCode.
