Preview G-code file in Cura.

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

As I've been using S3D for a "long" time in order to study sliced models before printing, I found that Cura now have a good G-code viewer.

However, the last version (Cura 3.1) do not have as good viewer as found in the beta version 2.5, as it sometimes add a small drop. In order to show the difference, I've added two picture of the same sliced model (Arthur's flow/speed test) first from S3D and Cura 2.5 Beta (none of them shows the Z stitch). 

I've also added a picture viewed with Cura 3.1 of the same sliced object.

 

Here's the link to "Arthur's speed test"; https://www.youmagine.com/designs/test-print-for-ultimaker--2#activity

S3D and Cura 2.5 Beta  Those two are showing all details the same as far as I can see..

And Cura 3.1 (Note the extra drop just under 10 ... )

 

The little droplet just above the S (the upper) is an error in the existing Gcode file and shall be visible on the print.

 

Thanks

 

Torgeir.
