Possible to view w/t ratio in generated gcode?

Recommended Posts

I need some way of seeing what single wall thickness Cura is using. In other words, if Cura lays down a single bead of plastic, what will the width of that bead be?

I can make a simplistic assumption about the single wall thickness based on the "Wall Thickness" field (eg if I enter 1.2 and the gcode has 2 perimeters then single wall thickness is probably 0.6) but I would really prefer it be stated explicitly in the gcode as a comment.

Ah, that makes sense, thank you.

I'm trying to follow the calibration steps here, because in my experience it is the easiest and most reliable way to get the flow rate correct:


So in the words of the pseudocode on your page, is it possible to get Cura to print the lineWidth variable into the gcode?

    • "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.
