Hi,

 

My 3D printer (from a local company in Brazil) goes crazy if the gcode file has comments (";something"). Is there a way to disable it? I found a solution for Simplify3D, but I would like to kepp using Cura.

 

Thank you all.

Daniel

    You could use the Search & Replace gcode postprocessing script and a simple regular expression pattern to remove a semicolon and everything following it.

     

    Or you could flash the printer with a decent firmware...

    Unfortunatelly I can't flash the printer (I will loose warranty), and I was looking for a more definitive way to do that, inside Cure (like I can do in Simplify3D). But thanks, I will start with you suggestion.

    In Extensions -> Post Processing -> Modify G-Code, add a "Search and Replace" script.

    For Search, enter ;.* (ie: semicolon dot asterisk)

    For Replace, enter nothing

    Turn on Use Regular Expressions
