Posted · Cura 2.3 A instead of E axis

My custom machine needs an A axis for extruding. I'm currently modifying the gcode file and replacing E's wit A's. Also I' replacing all M with ;M to comment all M codes. Any idea how to do this directly from Cura?

    While the Mach3 setting creates Gcode with the A axis for the print head the start and end code needs to be modified, see:

    Preferences>configure curer>printers> click on the printer and then: machine settings>printer

     

    Incidentally Mach 3 depreciates the use of G92. I wrote a Mach3 macro containing: DoOEMButton(142)    ' zero A
