Strip out commenting in output code

Recommended Posts


I have put together a 3d printer that is operating off of CNC based software. The code that Cura puts out begins commenting with a ";". In the software I am using to run the machine the commenting starts with a "(" and ends with a ")". Is there a setting in CUra where I can change this? It looks like all the post processors comment similarly.

No, there is no setting for this.


It would be fairly trivial (for someone who knows how to create plugins) to make a plugin that strips all comments before saving, but quite frankly I am starting to become a bit weary of writing plugins that I will never use myself and only benefit a handful of people. So, try to convince me it is worth my effort.

I am using this motion control software.

    • "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.
