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?

    • 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.
