Hi All

I am a teacher and would like to be able to show my pupils the GCode script generated by Cura - is there any way this is possible?

Thanks

Kerrie

Hi and welcome,

I don't know if this is exactly what you want but if you look in layer view, you can see the actual layers of the print.

Number 3 is the icon to click on to have layer view, in cura 3 i think its now on the top right corner of the viewing window still identified by an eye

It's not purely gcode but more of a preview, gcode is not that sexy to look at it's just a bunch of codes and numbers.

Save it to disk and open it with a text editor, it's just a text file so easy to read outside of Cura.

If you print through a secondary server (Octoprint or Repetier server) you can also view the code through those.
