Wrong comment in generated gcode regarding brim or skirt settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Wrong comment in generated gcode regarding brim or skirt settings

I recently stepped into the world of 3D printing and bought me a Balco Touchscreen 3D printer (which is in fact a Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus version sold by Balco).  The slicer software which is part of the packet is Ultima Cura 3.1.4.

When starting the slicer and ask for an skirt or brim, the generated gcode always shows "Skirt" in the comments.  However, the 3D print itself is OK and is starting with a skirt or brim, whatever is chosen.

Then I downloaded the very latest Cura 4.7.1 to see if that issue is still there and yes, it is.  Whatever you choose, skirt or brim, the resulting comment in the generated gcode is "Skirt".  But again, the 3D print is correct.

This is, however, confusing at first.  Certainly for a NOOB like me in the realm of 3D.

This isn't a big issue but it would be nice if the gcode would contain what is selected.

    I never noticed it, because I nearly never look at the gocde.

    But can you please report it here https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/new/choose as well, this is the official channel for reporting bugs.





    I've just done this: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/8615

      • 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
