Change printing settings while printing

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Change printing settings while printing

Hi everyone, is there any way to change printing settings while printing through USB? I know that some settings make Cura re-slice the object, but some of them don't, I'm particularly interested in Z-Offset and Flow Rate.


Sometimes I start a print and I see that the distance from the nozzle to bed is not good. Aborting the print to recalibrate is annoying and retighting the screws while printing is a bad idea since the print will have artifacts. It would be EXTREMELY nice to be able to add a Z-Offset while printing, the only thing Cura would have to do is adding this offset to every gcode instruction, this doesn't require a re-slice.

Nope, this is currently not supported. This is also something that isn't that needed for Ultimaker printers, so it's very unlikely that we will spend time on it (we being "Developers paid by Ultimaker"). But as always; Pull requests are welcome!
