How does CuraEngine determine Scale|Move|Mirror settings from Cura desktop app ?

Recommended Posts

CuraEngine produces different gcode files for different settings set for "Scale" in Cura desktop application.

However I compared the settings which were passed to it(as they are visible in the terminal) and found no difference in those settings passed whether it was a normally placed model or scaled model or with differently positioned model, but the gcode files for such different settings was different. How to determine in which way the engine is taking those settings ?

OS: Ubuntu 14.04

Cura: 2.3

CuraEngine: 2.3
