Stop Cura from auto unload filament after each print

Hi, I'm having an issue with Cura where on my MKS3 it auto unloads the filament once the print is finished, this is only when I use Cura on my MKS3, if I use PrusaSlicer I don't have this issue and I was wondering if anyone knows how I can disable this in Cura.

It's possible that's something in your end gcode in your printer definition in Cura. If nothing else, you can examine the generated gcode 8n a text editor.

I don't think so, under the printer settings which is setup for the MSK3 this is all I have, doesn't seem like anything that would unload the filament.

Hmm. Interesting. I use Cura and don't have this issue. A few questions:

  • Are you using a MMU2?
  • Are you using Octoprint?

Those are the only things that come to mind.

Same here, I semi-regularly use Cura for some prints and mine certainly does not do this.  It just moves the print head to the left, moves the print bed forward, and stops.
