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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
