New here! Gcode settings

Recommended Posts

Posted · New here! Gcode settings

 

I am very new to 3D printing and loving it so far.  I am having an issue when preparing to print which involves the gcode.  As you can see in the attached image, Cura 3.2.1 is telling me the imported gcode file cannot be modified.  The file I am importing has been created in Autodesk Fusion 360 and exported to Autodesk Print Studio. Print Studio is then exporting to Cura as a gcode. Can someone explain what I am doing wrong here?

Cura takes an STL file as the input.  Try to output an STL file from autodesk fusion 360.  Then cura creates the gcode file as *output*.  It can indeed read one in just to see (kind of) what the print will look like but it can't do anything other than display it.

 

The *printer* takes the gcode file as input.
