Netfabb gcode header/footer manipulation

Recommended Posts

Netfabb generated gcode contains a 'fixed' header and footer witch u can expand with a user defined gcode header/footer (Machine/...Extended Setup/Ultimaker specific)

The Netfabb header contains homing (G28), temperature setpoint (M109) and some more things.

I'm looking for a way to manipulate or turn OFF these Netfabb header, so i can use my own sequence.

Anyone ?

Hi Berend!

I have not tried this yet, but I think it's the correct place:

* Go to "Ulitmaker" in the Project-Tree on the right

* select the last Tab "Machine" (I translate the german tags, so the english version could vary a bit;-)

* "Machine-Type" should be "Ultimaker" and here at the right of "Ultimaker" hit the button with 3 dots "..."

* A Dialog opens -> select the "Ultimaker specific"-Tab and you see "GCode Header" and "GCode Footer"

I think, entering values here will do the job.....

Let me know, if it works! (I wanted to try this weeks ago, but I fogot it........)

Best regards from south of munich,

Hi Toni,

Thx for thinking, but...

the place of the header/footer you describe is the same i described in the 1st post.

The header you can define here is like an 'extra' header/footer.

It's placed to the top (header) and bottom (footer), additional to a Netfabb generated header/footer.

So the complete header/footer consists of a user defined part AND a Netfabb defined part.

For me it's interesting to know how this Netfabb generated code can be manipulated.

I like to have control over the full header and footer including the Netfabb part.

Looking forward to your experience with this,

    • "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.
