Last movement touches the print

Post by Cistehovado » April 30th, 2018, 3:52 pm

I am using latest Cura, it annoys me that final movement (from last point to print to corner) cura does not change height (Z) and touches print all the way and doing mark on print. Can I change this ?
(something like - after last printing movement, add +1mm to Z ?)

You can add a line in the End G-Code to raise the nozzle a little so as not to touch the model when moving to home position.

Sample from My 3D Printer END G-Code
M104 S0 ;extruder heater off
M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)

G91 ;relative mode
G1 Z+0.5 E-2 F{travel_speed} ;raise Z above print
G90 ;absolute mode
G1 X0 Y270 ;move extruder to rear left Model to front.
M84 ;steppers off
G90 ;absolute positioning

Use Z Hop and set it to 1 mm
