Anycubic Kobra Max OrcaSlicer Settings


I got an Anycubic Kobra Max a while back and I have used both Cura and SuperSlicer with the printer and recently started using OrcaSlider to see if it would be better. I am working on configuring everything to work correctly. Below are some of the Anycubic Kobra Max OrcaSlicer Settings I am using.

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 S40 ; start preheating the bed
M104 S{first_layer_temperature[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 Z20 F5000.0 ; Move to start position
;*** Wait till the extruder and bed are done heating
M190 S{bed_temperature[0]}  ; heat to Bed setting 
M109 S{first_layer_temperature[0]} T0 ; heat to Hotend setting
G1 E10 F100; extrude a little bit incase the hot end got hot fast than bed
M355 S1;turn on the case light
;*** Draw two lines
G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position
G1 X0.1 Y120.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the first line
G1 X0.4 Y120.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to side a little
G1 X0.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; Draw the second line
;*** Finish
G92 E0 ; Reset Extrude
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;extruder heater off
M140 S0;heated bed heater off (if you have it)
G91;relative positioning
G1 Z+10 F3600 ;move Z up a bit
G90;absolute positioning
G1 X10 F3000; get the head off the bed
G1 F3000 Y400 ;kick the bed out
M84;steppers off
M355 S0;turn off the case light
