Commandline options ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Commandline options ?

Hi

I would like to run several instances of Cura, one for each of my printers.
I try doing that by saving a project with settings for each specific printer,
I then call them like this using a Windows Shortcut:

Cura.exe Ender3_PETG_0,16.3mf
Doing so works, but i get two dialogs that I have to answer before Cura continue

loading, so my question is: Is the some options / parameters I can use on the command

line in order to make Cura just load the file as I want it done.
A full list of command line options would also be nice.

 

Thanks in advance

Asger

    There is no command line option to deal with these dialogs. Loading projects just isn't meant for this usecase. Is there a reason you can't just set up two printers in Cura, and switch to the appropriate one in each instance you launch?

     

    The option to remember your choice should work. If it doesn't that's a bug.

    Hi ahoeben

    Thanks for your answer.

    The benefit of doing it my way is that everything is set at once both printer and material, so I don't have to concentrate on setting up.

    And I don't have to concern about Curas questions regarding settings I changed, which I find difficult to understand, English isn't my main language.
    Unfortunately the post processing isn't saved with the project only with the printer, although it almost always is used per project. e.g. temperature towers for testing material. Forgetting to delete such scripts can really make a mess. 😉
    Post processing the only thing I do have to check every time. 😞

     

    Cura is the greatest, thanks.

    Best regards

    What I mean is that you can add an Ender3 to Cura twice. Just name them differently. You can then easily switch between these two configured printers, and the settings/material selections you make on one printer don't affect the other printer.

    Hi ahoeben

    Thanks for your advise, that will come in handy.

    It would be nice though, if it was possible to copy an already existing printer, so I only have to make some changes.
    Are there some setup files that are editable (json, xml, ini etc.)?
    P.s. what is the link about ?

    Best regards
