How do I view Cura's code?

Recommended Posts

Sorry that my request is so weird.

My goal is to be able to use a computer to fill in a profile with a continuous zigzag line for a project at work. I figured that a 3-D printer slicer was as good a place to start as any since what I am trying to do is similar to how a printer works. I would eventually like to be able to take the line into solidworks which I know is possible with the right macro so long as I can get the line as a series of points.

That being said I can't figure out how to view the computational part of Cura's code. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where it actually calculates the appropriate print path when given a slice?

Thanks

      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.
