In Simplify 3D when you select the Flashforge Creator Pro profile the default startup script creates a blob of plastic on the right side of the build platform. If you replace the starting scripts with these it will extrude a line of plastic along the front of the build platform to make sure the extruder is properly primed.
See this thread on 3dprintboard forum for the scripts.
As the screen on my Tech 1 died some time ago I am forced to work blind in the menus, while I have learnt most functions off by heart it is always a bit hit and miss if I have actually made a button press or not as no visual feedback is available, this can sometimes result in either the expected function not to take place or a totally different one to what was expected to take place. (annoying to say the least).
As you know our printers do not accept G-code directly and a binary x3g file is required. I therefore decided to compile two x3g files for my most commonly used function (Load Filament).
I will post here as someone may find them of use. Each file is named accordingly and pre-heats the corresponding extruder to 200oC and extrudes 200mm of fillament (at a sensible speed). They also lower all non used stepper motor voltages to safe levels.
I use a laptop permanetly connected to the printer and have these 2 files on an sd card inserted in the printer slot - so now I just select 'print from SD card' via my software of choice and select the required load filament file.
When I try to adjust the nozzle height of the left or right extruder, even after completely removing the screw on the back that tightens it down. I can't get it to move at all. What should I do?
