Trouble with gcode
December 16, 2015 07:39PM
I'm having trouble keeping my print head from ramming into the platter after I generate gcode with slicer.
Below is a few lines.
I see the nozzle is lifted to 5000 ?? (line 5) but then after heating goes to 0.2 and rams into platter. Is there somewhere where I can make sure all units are the same ??.

; external perimeters extrusion width = 0.50mm
; perimeters extrusion width = 0.58mm

M190 S65 ; set bed temperature

M109 S195 ; wait for temperature to be reached
G21 ; set units to millimeters

All units are the same... mm

The 5000 that you saw was the speed, not the position. Actual position is 5mm (Z5).

G1 Z0.200 F7800.000 means go to height 0.2mm, as fast as possible (I'm assuming that 7800 is the max speed). You might want to reduce your maximum speed and acceleration settings in Slic3r if this causes the nozzle to actually hit the bed.

And if the above is no good simply adjust your z end stop to the right height.

Thanks for the advice. I did play with the F7800 and slowed it down....that seemed to do the trick. I suppose it was gettting there just a bit too fast. thanks again
