Newbie here - 4 questions - How do I save the file to code everytime as a default?

Recommended Posts

Newbie here -

Question 1: How do I save the file to code everytime? If I hit save to my SD card it never saves as a GCODE. If I hit Save to file it gives me the option. How do I set code as the default save every time? 

Question 2 - My old printer was a QIDI X-One 2 - if I save a code to that and put it in my printer it's 2x faster to print and the quality is better. Example - QIDI will print my current project in 3.5 hours. Cura 3.5.0 though, the same project is 7.5 hours. Doube that if I do not enable enable gradual. My 2 prints I did also were not solid and was very spongly - again it does not do this with the other software. I did go in and set it to normal instead of fast and infill at 100% and 15 hours later it is acceptable but still not as good as the default SW that came with my other printer. 

Question 3: I see an area in settings that says diameter of filament and I cannot select 1.75mm - seems to print ok other than the above issues but not sure what I am doing wrong. 

Question 4: My printer is not listed and I did hook it up via USB and it does respond with controlling it and so on - how do I make it take my settings for my printer?

 

I appreciate all your help. As I mentioned I am very new to this - 1 month in but I'm seeing stuff that forsake needs to be addressed. 

 

Thank you!

    • "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.
