Editing G code

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Cura generates the G code in a way that extrusion head is always printing at 45degree to X axis.  I want to edit this in G code and make it print only in a horizontal direction (i.e. parallel to X axis). Any suggestions? Thank you!

further explanation - basically I need to stop bed movement (Y axis). Of course, the bed can move when layer need to be changed. But, the printer head should move along X direction only and print. (trying to print a simple cuboid for my research)

    • 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.
