Cura Noob, help required

  • Hi There,

    I am using my converted Tevo Little Monster to try Cura, I configured the system as best I could however there is one issue. I am using version 3.6 Ultimaker.

    The printer seems to hover above the bed by about 10cm and attempts to print a large brim. The extruder goes haywire with huge moves but no extrusion and then extrudes backwards?!?

    The part is a 20x20x20 test cube. So why its so large and massively offset I do not know?

    Attached is the Gcode as I am very confused, I did feel it had something to do with G21 or M83. I tried slicing sever cubes (there are 6 in total) and no matter what I changed or configured it seemed to do the same thing. When I load a slic3r file its fine.

    Any help would be appreciated.


    Best regards,

    It would appear you have a G1 Z50 move in your startup gcode in Cura. That would explain why it's printing in the air.

    G91 E8 isn't a valid command either.
