Running Cura from command line

Recommended Posts

Posted · Running Cura from command line

I'm looking to automate the slicing of some .stl files and have been trying to use CuraEngine. I keep getting:

[ERROR] Trying to retrieve unregistered setting with no value given: 'mesh_rotation_matrix'

 

The command (among other attempts) I have been using is 

CuraEngine slice -l path\to\stl\test.stl

My understanding is that if no settings .json is specified cura uses default values but this doesn't seem to work. 

 

Thanks

CuraEngine doesn't have default values (or well; it gets them from the fdmprinter.def.json). So in order for this to work, it needs to know where to find the file.
