Insert gcode on Layer X

Recommended Posts

Yes i did and it works, but i have to set everything on every print.

I'm looking for a possibility to set a gcode snippet and then only to say insert thins on layer 40, or layer XY ...

As example, i have a third fan and i want him to blow on layers with small details. So i want to tell simply: power on at layer X; power off at layer Y; on again on layer Z

I know i can do it with search and replace and i do it this way, but maybe there is a more simpler way.

I'm bored and this sounds interesting.

It could be as simple as a bunch of options like:

.
At Layer [ A ] do [ gcode ]
At Layer [ B ] do [ gcode ]
.....

Or, something smarter like: Turn on Fan if Layer uses less than N.nn mm of filament.

Or maybe that's not exactly what you're looking for.

@ManuelW , contact me via PM if you want to discuss further. I may be able to help.

    • "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.
