Can anyone point me to a list of the Cura parameters that can be included in start/end code for G-code.

e.g. {material_bed_temperature}

I specifically want the term used for 'Initial layer temerature'


Thanks Colin

    look at the fdmprinter.def.json file in the definition folder of the cura forlder with a text editor

    search for the text you have in the parameter list on the right of the cura window, this text appears in the label parameter and what you want is just before the ':{'




                                        "label": "Inner Wall Speed",

    Thanks, I have found it.

    Is there not a published list giving these parameters in an easily readable form.

    The 'fdmprinter.def.json' is very difficult to read, especially in Notepad. Don't know if any other text editors format it in a more readable form.

    I subsequently read it into Word and it formats to a readable form.

    Since this keeps coming back every so often, I made a quick and dirty html page that parses fdmprinter.def.json and fdmextruder.def.json and spits out a list:

    Edit: yes, the list is quite long.
