Move wiping motion 2 mm towards front

Post by monsteroyd » Thu Aug 15, 2019 1:22 pm

Well it looks like my support is over :( but it has been a great year with the Mini2.

Anyway it looks like the wiping is done by the gcode added at the front of generated gcode. Can someone show me which parts I need to look at to tweak it so that the wipe is moved towards the front a tiny bit? It looks like my printed pad holder is getting run into a bit at the back, so moving it up a bit would help. I am not sure why this has happened, but it has.

In Cura LE go to Settings>Printer>Manage Printers. Select the machine you are working with and click the Machine Settings button. You will find the start gcode there.

This is the code you will need to modify. Adjust the Y values to place the wiping where you want it. You might be able to loosen the wiper holder screws and shift it enough to clear.

Code: Select all
