Moving purge line

Fri Jul 24, 2020 12:28 am

Hi, got a new Ender 3 printer, the profile included in S3D for this printer works fine, but is probably for the Ender 3 Pro with magnetic bed.
I have the Ender 3X with glass bed, the purge line hits the clips, in Cura the purge line is on the most left side.
How can I change S3D to purge on the left (or right) of the bed?
Many thanks in advance, Herman

You will need to take a look at the starting script and find the G1 commands. There should be at least 3 G1 commands, one that specifies the z-height (G1 Z# F#), one that determines the purge line position (G1 X# Y# F#), and the final line that performs the purge (G1 X# E# F# or G1 Y# E# F#).

Yep, that did work very well, I simply copied the start G code from Cuda. Thanks for your help.
