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.
Does anyone have a script or a few lines of code I can use in the startup so the bed and nozzle will heat up at the same time instead of the bed heating first and then the nozzle?
I tried a couple mods a while back, but never could get it to heat both at the same time.
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.
