    This is an existing post about "newheated bed installed". Just thought it would make more sense to put it there instead of "cura setup"

    I have a problem. I have an auto level RoBO 3d R1. I tried to auto level in Mattercontrol but everytime it would just move to the middle and start to print about a half an inch above the bed. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. I tried to use Cura but when it started to level it was about 4 inches above the bed and then once it was done checking all the point "all were about 4 inches above the bed" it started printing about 4 inches above the bed. I have no idea what I am missing or doing wrong.

    Edit: I got it fixed. I just spun the rods until i placed to nozzle to paper thickness from the bed. Left it there then started a print. All way fine.

    any suggestions on adding to the ending GCode something to pop the bed back out the front at the end of the print? I have looked for something and cant figure out what to add or where to add it.

    something akin to:

    G90 X0 Y0


    You would not likely want to home the extruder since it may hit something...

    With Cura do you need to level the bed for every single print?

    Just add G29 to the startup code and it runs before every print. Doesn't take long.

    does anyone know the Print Head size setting to print objects seperately?

    USB? Do you mean an SD card?
    I mean the printer connects via USB...presumably that works.

    When I start my print with Cura, the bed auto-levels and leaves the nozzles at the top-right of the bed (as it should), but when it starts to print the object, the extruder starts feeding filament out of the nozzle as the print head is moving in to position to start the print. So I get a line of filament from the top-right of the bed to where the print begins. Anyone else have this problem?

    If you go to the end g-code there is a line that is going to be

    G1 E3 /or something like that

    You can remove this line if you want. It is just a means of priming the nozzle.

    I decided to try Cura and following this forum I fixed all the settings for my ROBO 3d R1. My issue is when I print I only get stuff that looks like cobwebs. I've rechecked and rechecked my settings and can't figure where I went wrong.

    Reduce your offset? Pictures or setting screenshots please

    That fixed it. I don't need the thing to prime since it prints a couple of borders around the outside of the print first.

    I did everything in step 1-7

    using robo3d r1 w auto level, pla, via usb com3 250000

    but only the heatbed temp heats up and increases to the 70 mark but the extruder temp goes to 27 and just hangs

    the extruder does heat up properly in other software like MC - just tested

    You'd need to export the G-code and look at the first couple lines. For some reason Cura does not put the temperature settings in the custom G-code and injects it before, which is not user editable afaik.

    Hey all,

    I try many times cura but it's not running properly. The problem seems that the M565 does not to be consider by the printer. When i start printing the printer run the G29 routine but when it start printing the nozzle is on the build plate. I try many Z offset but the result was slightly the same.

    Anyone has an idea ?

    Might be worth switching to the g1 g92 method

    Code:
    G1 Z1.0; raise the nozzle 1mm
    G92 Z0; force new Z 0 position

    Thanks Mike i will try this.

    I suppose the G1 Z1.0 is the Z offset ?
