Batch slicing STLs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Batch slicing STLs

Hi all,


I am currently trying to batch slice a whole lot of .stl files

I had hoped to do this by using a python script to call CuraEngine with the relevant arguments (changing the file names each time): 

curaengine slice -j creality_cr10.def.json -l input.stl -o output.gcode

However, for every print setting, a parameter in the form of "-s setting="value"" must be used, totalling hundreds of values, which is unweildy. 

How else can this be achieved?

If you don't provide a value for the setting, the default_value will be used. As long as you don't want to change that, you also don't need to provide a different value for it.
