How do disable comments in the generated g-code?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How do disable comments in the generated g-code?

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

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
