Strip out commenting in output code

Hi,

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.

 

Thanks!

Karl

    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.

    Thx. Ahoeben but no need! This  translator seems to work:

    scroll down the page a little to the link for the converter.

     

    I am using this motion control software.

     

    thanks!
