Missing console to send gcode commands to printer and see feedback

Recommended Posts

This is a very important feature because when you need to setup the printer you need a console to do so.

For example to setup M851 (Z offset) you need to send gcode comands manualy.

So I have to close Cura and change to older cura 15 or Simplify3D to do so.

I want to delete all other softwares but can't do it because of this feature is missing in Cura 3.0.4 or 3.1 Beta.

I have to completely agree here. I bought a Creality Ender 3 with sole purpose of learning the 3D Printer technology in a hands on way. It was economical and let's me actually play with much of the functionality. An output display doesn't seem like an unreasonable ask.


I very much appreciate that Ultimaker's software is free for everyone's use. However, I think setting standards in an industry requires a fair bit of give. That does have it's returns. I very much want to get a much more comprehensive and detailed 3D printer after this learning curve and something like this kind of good will goes a long way in the decision making process.


That's just my 2 cents.

    • "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.
