Anycubic Kobra Max Cura Settings v1.0



Anycubic Kobra Max


I got an Anycubic Kobra Max as a gift from my wife, and I have been unimpressed with Cura or SuperSlicer’s support for the printer. There are only two profiles, with minimal start and end G-codes. I have been working on improving my Anycubic Kobra Max Cura settings.

Start G-Code

I took a lot of this start code from CHEP, and my Ender 3 Pro start G-code. I liked CHEP’s implementation of simultaneously preheating the nozzle and bed to speed up the print start. I also liked the printing of a line of filament before the skirt or brim to make sure there is a flow of filament.

;*** Start Dual Nozzle/Bed Preheating ***
M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; start preheating the bed
M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}  T0 ; start preheating hotend
G28 ; Home all axes

;*** Draw a Nozzle Cleaning line on the Left Side of Bed
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G1 X0.1 Y50 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position

;*** Wait till the extruder and bed are done heating
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; heat to Bed setting 
M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}  T0 ; heat to Hotend setting

;*** Draw two lines
G1 X0.1 Y350.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the first line
G1 X0.4 Y350.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to side a little
G1 X0.4 Y50 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the second line

;*** Finish
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G1 Z2.0 F3000 ; Move Z Axis up little to prevent scratching of Heat Bed

End G-Code

I wanted the printer to present the print like with my Ender 3 Pro, so I added that presentation G-code in my end code. By default, the Kobra max seems to move the bed backward.

M104 S0 ;Turn-off hotend
M140 S0 ;Turn-off bed
G91 ;Relative positioning
G1 E-2 F2700 ;Retract a bit
G1 E-2 Z0.2 F2400 ;Retract and raise Z
