i am pretty new to 3d printing and cura (got my 3d printer yesterday)

 

i wonder will cura not open the g code files it writes?

i guess then i have to use project files for my own creations?

 

i have no other program i can think of that can not read the files that it writes.

so i am a bit puzzled if that is indeed the case.

You can open a gcode file to inspect it, but you can not change parameters and reslice it. This is because the original information of the 3d models is missing in the gcode files.

yeah 5 minutes after i wrote my post i thought "wait.... that´s just code for the stepper motor isn´t it?".

 

i have a lot to learn about 3d printing. but it´s only one day and i have made my first own design (well from an image) and the print came out pretty well.
