gcode Filename

Hi all,

As bloody beginner I would have a question relation gcode creation:

I'm wondering that gcode from self created objects does neither create a file name with meta date (filament and print duration) / remaining print time nor extrudes the very first string front left to get the extruder running well. How can I configure this? Both is very helpful.

Regards

Friedemann

RE: gcode Filename

Hover your mouse over Print Settings->Output options->Output filename format and you can see a summary of what can be included in the generated filename. The {print_time} placeholder can be used for print time estimation, for example.

Thx!  👍 

And how do I get the pre-extrusion before the skirt is printed?

RE: gcode Filename

If you add one of the default prusa printers using the configuration wizard it will add a new printer to the list of printers in Printer Settings, that default printer (if its a prusa like the mk3) will have some default gcode under Printer Settings > Custom Gcode.  Those entries for Start  and end handle all the default prusa things like mesh levelling commands and the prime line.

The relevant bits are 

G28 W ; home all without mesh bed level
G80 ; mesh bed levelling
G1 Y-3.0 F1000.0 ; go outside print area
G92 E0.0
G1 X60.0 E9.0 F1000.0 ; intro line
G1 X100.0 E12.5 F1000.0 ; intro line
G92 E0.0

Are you referring to the prime line printed at the start of the print? That's normally created in the startup gcode. You can see the gcode for your current printer profile under Print Settings->Custom G-code->Start G-code. If you look at the end, you'll see the commands that print the line right after the "go outside print area" comment. The basic prime line is very simple, but you can use startup gcode to do a lot of print preparation.
