Cura_SteamEngine layer height nowhere to be found :|

Recommended Posts

I've been banging my head against the wall with this issue.

The thing is that I'm able to excecute SteamEngine via command line and load all settings form an .ini file BUT the layer height. I toyed loads of things but I still can't figure out how to set this parameter.

There is no way to set it via -s settingkey as per


And If I use "layer_height = 0.2" in the .ini it fails

What am I missing, this shouldn't be so hard! :(

I'm using cura 15.04.

But it'd be much easier if I could directly load an .ini profile.

The problem I have is that when I try this i get the following error:

Default config 'default.cfg' not used?

Config(C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04\MCF.ini): Line zd: No key value pair found

Failed to read config 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04\MCF.ini'

I generated this profile on cura's GUI and it works fine there.

Why it's not working on the command line? What could be wrong??

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
