Keywords arithmetic in Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Keywords arithmetic in Cura

I'm aware of the availability of keywords that can be used in G-code that are parsed by Ultimaker Cura on compiling the G-code file.

 

I'm missing a good reference how you can do some basic arithmetic to parse a formula to a value rather than an in-place substitution. E.g. in Slic3r you can use some complex arithmetic and conditional statements to define custom values.

 

In defining a certain speed (in mm/min) based on a travel speed (in mm/sec) in end or start G-code one might to use something like:

 

G1 X0 F{speed_travel}*60*0.75

 

How would you implement this in e.g. an Ultimaker Cura "end G-code" to expand to G1 X0 F5400 (for 120 mm/sec travel speed that is)

Here's the best reference I can do:

 

"It is not possible to do arithmetic in gcode snippets in Cura"

That is definitely an answer! And a great reference for those who seek the same.

 

I guess this should all be done in a post processing script of your own.
