Ultigcode commands

Recommended Posts

Where can I find a list of Ultigcode commands? I want to tweak the Gcode generated by Cura. I'm already familiar with Gcode programming for Mach3 (milling and turning), but I need to know what is allowed in the Ultigcode dialect.

What kind of tweaks do you have in mind? The most obvious ones can be tweaked in Cura itself by using the TweakAtZ plugin.

 

My immediate problem was that Cura was doing some unpredictable things on a design of mine (see my other question from yesterday). I tried using the online slicer "Astroprint" and got better results, but I wanted to check that the commands were compatible. I also wanted to try and append the Astroprint gcode to that for a printed base generated in Cura, which needed me to be able to put in an initial Z offset. This may, or may not work! However, you have got me to check out all the plugins available, which I wasn't aware of. Thanks for that.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
