Startup Ooze Wipe

Post by Sensei » Wed Jun 09, 2021 2:29 pm

Hi. I just upgraded from an M2 Rev.E to the M3 ID. On my M2 just before the print started, the print head would move off the print plate and extrude for about 5-10 seconds, wipe against the edge of the plate, then start printing.

On the M3 ID, instead of extruding into thin air, it prints a line for each print head along the front edge of the X axis. This is fine except that I have a long print job and I need to move this wipe process to occur along the Y axis or in the same manner as the M2 as the current X axis wipe interfered with my print job.

Help?

I figured this one out. In the startup sequence I changed

FROM
G1 X40 Y6 F10000 ; move toolhead to the unused front edge
G1 Z0.20 F1000 ; move bed to prime start position
G1 X160 E10 F1000 ; prime the nozzle


TO
G1 X25 Y5 F10000 ; move toolhead to the unused front edge
G1 Z0.20 F1000 ; move bed to prime start position
G1 Y160 E10 F1000 ; prime the nozzle
