Posted · Changing G-code flavor not taking effect

Hello,

 

I have been trying to change the G-code flavor from Marlin to Mach3. I tried changing this from the machine settings for a custom sized FFF printer and restarted Cura. However, when I check the output G-code file, the G-code flavour still shows as Marlin! I have checked the Printer machine settings several times and am sure that it is set to Mach 3.

 

Am I missing something, maybe in the print settings? We are doing Wire Arc additive manufacturing using Kuka and it needs the Mach 3 g-code instructions. (There should be no G0's like in Marlin)

    Hi @smsusi. Until recently, there was a regression in Cura whereby the mach3 option was being ignored (which you have found!) A fix has been submitted to the Cura devs and I should think that it will be in the 4.1 release. In the meantime, if you are using either Linux or Windows (sorry, not OS X), you can try one of my releases that already incorporate the fix. I don't know how well the Mach3 flavour works as I don't think it sees a lot of attention so when you get to try it out, if you find any issues, please report them.

     

    You can find my releases at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0

     

    They do not conflict with the Ultimaker releases.

    Hello,

    Are the G0's the only difference between the two flavors

     

    If it's the case, try to do a PostProcessing Plug in to change all the G0's in G1 ?

     

    In case I can do it if you want

    Thanks a lot, @smartavionics, I tried one of the recent release from you and it works! The output is now in Mach 3.

     

    Thanks, @JCD. We are postprocessing the output files...yes, that's the only change needed right now.

     

    Thank you again.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
