The extruder goes down at the end of the print

The situation where the extruder goes down at the end of the print can be problematic and cause damage to the printed part. Here’s how to deal with this situation:

STEP 1: DISABLE THE “M84” COMMAND

  • Log in to your slicing software (e.g., Cura, PrusaSlicer, Simplify3D) and open the print profile you are using.
  • Look for the “ending scripts” section within the print profile settings. This section contains the commands that are automatically executed at the end of each print.
  • Find the “M84” command within the “ending scripts” section and disable it by adding a semicolon (;) before the command, as shown in the example: “; M84″.
  • Saves changes to the print profile.

Please note: After about 10 minutes, even if the “M84” command has been disabled, the motors will still deactivate automatically.
