Cura 3.6.0 won't open its own GCODE

Recommended Posts

I am trying to diagnose an extrusion issue I'm seeing only in Cura that I've had for a while now, but I've run into a roadblock. I can view Simplify3D's GCODE and Slic3rs GCODE in Cura, but I can't import Cura's own GCODE to analyze what Cura is doing. This strikes me as a pretty serious issue. Can anyone else confirm this?


To recreate the issue,

  1. Be using 3.6.0
  2. Slice a file and save the GCODE
  3. Try to re-open the GCODE
  4. Try to open another slicer's GCODE as a comparison

Attempting to load Cura's sliced files back into Cura results in an "Invalid File" error.

Someone else please test this to confirm whether or not this is just me.

Replace the wrong variable in your start- and end-scripts with {speed_travel} and it will work.

This isn't my own start/end g-code. This is straight from the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus profile provided with Cura upon installation. This change did make generated gcode openable though, 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.
