Cura_SteamEngine layer height nowhere to be found :|

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

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/vivid/man1/CuraEngine.1.html

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

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

That manual is old. Depending on what version of the engine you use, a lot of things changed. I'll poke one of the engine devs to give you a full answer.

On the new CuraEngine (of Cura >= 15.06) use

./CuraEngine slice -s layer_height=0.2

You can type

./CuraEngine --help

to get more info on how to use the tool.

What version of CuraEngine are you using?

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??
