Can Cura be used to Generate the .g or .gx file?

Posted · Can Cura be used to Generate the .g or .gx file?

I recent bought a Power Spec Ultra 2.0 which is basically a Flash Forge Creator Pro with Dual Extrusion.  I have a profile in Cura for the Flash Forge but it generates .x3g or .gcode.  The printer can only read .g and .gx files.  Is there anyway I can generate those file types?

I don't have your printer, so I can't check, but isn't a .g file just a .gcode file that has been renamed? And a .gx file a renamed .x3g file?

I tried to rename the extension with no luck.  Maybe some slight differences in the syntax?

Could be syntax.  The Power Spec website says it uses Replicator firmware.  Checking the Replicator site might give more info.  There was a hint there that they want you to use their slicing software.  It could be a proprietary thing.

Maybe if you upload a .g and a .gx file somewhere, we could have a look if it is something that can be easily implemented.

This is a .gx file that flashforge printers use, sliced in the flashprint slicer, dunno if this will help.

I've had a closer look and it looks like something quite proprietary and hard to support without proper documentation.
