Ok, I’m a total noob when it comes to printing ( 3 days ) and this may be a dumb question but I have a Creality Ender 3 and when the print job has finished the bed slides itself all the way to the rear of the machine so I have to manually move it to the front from within the GUI to make it easier to remove the print. My question is, is there a way to make it slide to the front when the print job is finished?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, yes

In Cura, go to the settings tab, then select printer, then goto manage printer. Select your Ender 3 and click the machine settings button.

Under the printer tab you should see “Start G Code” and “End G Code” at the bottom.

In the “End G code” box you need to edit/delete the line

G28 X0 Y0 ; home x and y axis…this is likely your current setting and is the reason why your bed goes to the back as this is the printers home postion.

Make sure you check your coordinates carefully and do not exceed the beds maximum Y value (Bed size in mm)!

Try this

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops, so the head is out of the way

G1 Y150 F5000 ;move bed forward (Y)150mm to remove part at (F)5000 feed rate
