    Not correct. The G1 sequence is a replacement to the m565. It's just a different way of doing it. It should be placed after G28 but before G29

    Ok so i do the method of the G92, But the only way that i found to the head doesn't touch the bed is to place te code after the G29.

    Well it's my start g code who seems to be functional.

    ;Sliced at: {day} {date} {time}
    ;Basic settings: Layer height: {layer_height} Walls: {wall_thickness} Fill: {fill_density}
    ;Print time: {print_time}
    ;Filament used: {filament_amount}m {filament_weight}g
    ;Filament cost: {filament_cost}
    M190 S100 ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature line
    M109 S235 ;Uncomment to add your own temperature line
    G21 ;metric values
    G90 ;absolute positioning
    M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode
    M107 ;start with the fan off

    G28 ;X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops
    ;G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

    G29 ;Run auto-level
    G1 Z0.7; raise the nozzle 0.7mm
    G92 Z0; force new Z 0 position

    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length
    G1 F200 E3 ;extrude 3mm of feed stock
    G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again
    G1 F{travel_speed}
    ;Put printing message on LCD screen
    M117 Printing...

    You have this backwards

    Code:
    G1 Z0.7; raise the nozzle 0.7mm
    G92 Z0; force new Z 0 position
    G29 ;Run auto-level
    
    Also do a paper leveling of the X axis if the nozzle isn't touching the bed during G29.

    Good morning,
    thanks for the tutorial, I got my R1 and in the night I should unbox it. Can you explain me why this software is (if so) better than the supplied one?


    Thanks!!!

    MatterControl is junk in my opinion.
    Trying to explain the failings with it is impossible if you don't have a point of reference.
    :)

    It probably works (if it works at all) as starter software, but I think most people tend to outgrow it fairly quickly.

    I would also like to know this. I measured the x/y axis by hand however it didn't like that at all

    The carriage is around 120mm long x 50mm wide. The height from the nozzle to the bottom of the x rail is 30mm.

    Noob question sorry.... But when I put those dimensions it actually highlights 1/3 of the build space around my part so I would only be able to print 3 items that are about 20mm high. Am I inputting incorrectly?

    (Used dimensions given for both x and y and z dimensions )

    Hi Mike, so I seem to have everything working with Cura on my iMac but my printer is printing just above the printer. What do I need to do to correct that? Also I get this error in the printing window.
    < Error:No Line Number with checksum, Last Line: 21

    Thanks for any help that you can provide.

    Checksums can be ignored.

    When you home the printer does the nozzle touch the bed?

    That's good to know. When I home the bed with the nozzle in the middle or on the left side of the platform it touches the bed but for some reason when I move the head to the right side it homes in the air and not of the platform. I've tried manually moving the head to the position with it touching the bed but I don't know how to set that as the home point.

    Also it does the same thing when it runs the auto level sequence. It's fine on all of the left and middle points but the right points home midair.

    Need to add a G28 to home all Axis, followed by a G29 in the start up gcode. G29 won't execute without the G28 preceding it.

    No. The new cura is not ready for use with other printers yet in my opinion. For now stick with an older revision.
