Cura 4.0 & 4.3 do not recognise GCode files

I have noticed that both version 4.0 and 4.3 give me an invalid file error if I try to load a GCode file previously created using either versions.  Is this meant to work this way, or is it bug?

    The problem with that file is that it contains three lines that contain the string {speed_travel} (or {travel_speed}, I edited it and can't remember which was the original). Point is, the gcode reader can't cope with {symbol} when it's looking for a number. Once I had replaced the {symbol} occurrences with numbers, the file loaded into Cura OK. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that information, based on your comments, this sounds like its something that Cura generates during the slicing process.  I wonder if it can be considered as a "bug".  Its more of a nuisance than anything if you want to check a file after it has been sliced and saved.

    Nope, it's in your start- / end-scripts, {travel_speed} seems not to be a valid symbol for Cura.

     

    The snippets are labeled with:

    "; Ender 5 Custom Start G-code"

    "; Ender 5 Custom End G-code"

    where does this come from? 🤷‍♂️

     

    Anyway: you can edit those things in the Cura machine settings.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        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.
