Gcode Text

Posted · Gcode Text

Hello I have found a website that turns midi files into gcode so I can play music on my Ultimaker 2+. When I generate the Gcode it does not give me a Gcode file but it gives me the raw gcode text to copy. How can I take that text and make it a gcode file to play on my Ultimaker?

    I think I have found a way that works even though it is not the best way however I was not able to test it because I am doing a very large print. They way I am doing it is using a text editor to edit a already made Gcode file and deleting everything and pasting the new gcode text into it. After I save it its still a gcode file and when I open it it has the new text.

    A Gcode file is nothing more than a text file, so your way is ok.

    If the website don't provide a file to download, you can only copy and paste it to a Texteditor and then save it.
