Move nozzle well away after print end

What is the problem?

After my print the nozzle seems to stay at its final position. It sort of dribbles a but an leaves a blob

What did you already try to solve it?


Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


Complete Logs

octoprint.log, serial.log or output on terminal tab at a minimum, browser error console if UI issue ... no logs, no support! Not log excerpts, complete logs.)

Not sure where to find these. The print finishes ok.

Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible

Ender3v2. Petg. But pla did it too. Plugins for bltough, smart filament, tplink smart plug, bed level visualiser, temperatures.

Either in your slicer end gcode or in the OctoPrint gcode scripts in After print job completes you may add a Z-lift

G1 Z10

I would also add something like
G28 X0 Y0 or G28 X Y (depending on the firmware)

Need to make sure it is in relative mode first.... That might go kind wrong

So it is

G91  ; Set to relative mode
G1 Z10  ; Move 10mm up
G90  ; Set to absolute mode again

What the end gcode on my TAZ 6 does is retract some filament, move the nozzle up, move the bed to the back of the printer, wait for the bed to cool down, and move the bed to the front of the printer. I've included it below but please adjust it for your own printer dimensions, slicer modes, etc. Note: The variables in {} are replaced by Cura with the appropriate temperature for the material being printed. Substitute appropriate temperatures if you are not using Cura.
