Cura Settings for XYZ DaVinci 1.0

How to Do It

  1. Tear a hole in the side of your machine to access the SD card (I wish I was kidding)
  2. Enter the settings below into Cura.
  3. Slice the model in Cura according to the designer’s recommended settings.
  4. Save the GCode file as SAMPLE01.gcode on the SD card
  5. CRITICAL: Using a text editor or GCode post processor, replace all G0 commands with G1 commands. Your print will be a blob of plastic if you skip this step. My understanding is that XYZ firmware does not support G0 commands. As a result, the Z-Axis will not retract correctly and layers will pile on top of each other.
  6. Print your work by selecting “DEMO” in the utilities menu.
