Cura 2.6.2 and x3g

Posted · Cura 2.6.2 and x3g

Okay I admit it I am out of my depth.

I have a CTC that uses x3g instead of gcode.

I am told I "simply" need to use gpx. But I do not understand how to get it to work.

Has anyone written a plugin for Cura to do this?

Also could someone please explain why the designers of Cura don't implement the ability of outputting x3g? Probably way about my pay grade the answer, but I thought I would just ask.

    All but a few of the Cura developers are paid by Ultimaker. Ultimaker printers don't use x3g.

    If you need support for x3g, please ask the manufacturer of your printer to get involved in the development of Cura (or find a fellow community member who is capable and motivated to do it in their place)

    Tldr: none of the Cura developers have a motivation to fix your problem, harsh as it might sound

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
