  1. Hi I am a noob to all things 3D, Trying to understand start / end G-Code, I note there Are "comments" that are responded to by Cura, In some older versions of Cura as supplied with the Anet A8 (14.7) there are ;comments such as ...... ;Sliced at: {day} {date} {time} ;Basic settings: Layer height: {layer_height} Walls: {wall_thickness} Fill: {fill_density} ;Print time: {print_time} ;Filament used: {filament_amount}m {filament_weight}g ;Filament cost: {filament_cost} ;M190 S{print_bed_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature line ;M109 S{print_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own temperature line these are still supported by 3.1.0 plus other lines inserted at the beginning of the generated G-Code. Example ;FLAVOR:Marlin ;TIME:8907 ;Filament used: 11.0509m ;Layer height: 0.2 ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 3.1.0 ........................ ;Sliced at: Mon 22-01-2018 14:16:25 ;Basic settings: Layer height: 0.2 Walls: 0.8 Fill: {fill_density} ;Print time: 03:25:30 ;Filament used: [18.17]m [54.20712796875]g ;Filament cost: [0] ;M190 S60 ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature line ;M109 S210 ;Uncomment to add your own temperature line these result in the G-Code produced with the values filled in (a feature I am finding useful in my confused state) I have searched unsuccessfully for any documentation on what "comments" are supported and by which slicers. Is there anything out there on the web documenting this. Thanks Chris I worked as a computer troubleshooting engineer for 40 years, and met many people having a nervous breakdown trying to understand STUFF that was not documented I said get a life, just live with what you know, or you get the men in white coats coming to lock you up.... now I know how they felt.
  2. Hi I am reading this topic to find a fix to MY problem, I am a noob to all things 3D, but I have been looking far and wide for answers to my questions. I think this ZEBRA patterning is documented else where as " moiré patterns " caused by the bed levelling software used on many printers, the pattern being caused by the steps added to the print to account for the bed being out of level and resulting in extra bits being added to level the print.... I saw this on Utube "makers muse" live stream recording. I hope this helps (if its indeed true) Chris
