You can just add one line at the end of your starting gcode script if you want to avoid this in the future. Something like G1 Z200 F3000. Just make the Z-value something large so that the extruder will be moving DOWN to your print instead of up through it. But not large enough that you exceed your Z-axis stroke
Thanks for this suggestion.
I tried to insert the line but it seems I have to compensate for it in the actual gcode and not the start script. Or maybe the code is not write.
So I inserted the code G1 Z50 F3000 to first move the bed away before the extruders move to the purge location. - This prevents the extruders hitting the part on the way to the purge location
(As an aside, this wouldn't have been a problem if S3D didn't change the purge location... anyway)
So after purging, the extruders move to location over the print bed where it'll be starting the Print...
the bed then moves to the set height (Again it makes absolutely no sense why it's done this way!)
but since I've moved it away initially, there's the gap (I believe 50) from where the bed should be.
So I inserted the line G1 Z-50 F3000 as the very last line in the start up script but that didn't work.
Any advice/Suggestions please??
P.S Simplify3D, if you're reading, please make this Feature useable otherwise, why go into the hassle of including it!!
