Printing window buffers gcode?

Recommended Posts

I am experimenting with all the settings in Cura. I often print the same object to see what changes.

Tonight I sliced the same object I was already printing, but with different settings. Therewith overwriting the file that is actually being printed!

Does the "printing" function (which is a separate window) first buffer the entire file in memory before it starts printing?

I'm hoping that at some point we will be able to apend the file name with preselected options such as date, layer height, temperature, ... basically a common set fo variables from what was used to slice the model. And while I'm at it my 2 main requests that printrun does not make easy:

- a dropdown selection of printing material that the user has stored with things such as temp and steps/e

- move the position on the bed where the model prints, I am lazy and don't want to keep slicing for a different position and too ... unsure to move the coordinate system 0 position.

    • "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.
