How do I configure CURA to work with the THREEDY?

The machine settings for Cura are shown in the dialog below. These can be entered using the wizard or the machine settings dialog :

Cura

In addition the filament diameter should be set to 1.75mm on the Basic tab and the Nozzle Diameter set to 0.4mm on the Advanced Tab.

We recommend the following gcode for the start gcode :

G21        ;metric values
G90        ;absolute positioning
M82        ;set extruder to absolute mode
M107       ;start with the fan off
G28 X0 Y0  ;move X/Y to min endstops
G28 Z0     ;move Z to min endstops
G1 Z15.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm
G92 E0                  ;zero the extruded length
G1 F200 E3              ;extrude 3mm of feed stock
G92 E0                  ;zero the extruded length again
G1 F{travel_speed}

and the following for the end gcode

M104 S0 ; turn off extruderM140 S0 ; turn off bed

G1 X-110 Y105 F7000 ;move X/Y to min/max

G1 Z160 ; move platform down

M84 ;steppers off
