Where can I find all the variables of Cura settings?


For example I need "M900 K{layer_z * 0.02}" in G code, but it's "layer_z" variable from prusha. I need the same, but for Cura.

    A bit more readable version of the info derived directly from fdmprinter.def.json can be found here:

    Unfortunately, you cannot do math in replacement patterns in Cura.

    But like @Cuq said, there's a neat plugin to help you with Linear Advance settings.

    sorry to revive this old thread but in Cura 5.0 some material specific replacement patterns are not replaced/available, even though as they are in the linked 'easy readable' webpage linked above.

     

    When checking the supposedly 'source' file, the https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blob/main/resources/definitions/fdmprinter.def.json

    they are also not in there, so I'm not surprised they are not working. But that means the 'easily readable' list needs refreshing or something is missing currently in Cura itself.

     

    The ones I'm missing are (at least):

     

    {material_id}   The id of the material (eg 'ultimaker_pla_blue')
    {material_type}   The type of material (eg 'PLA')
    {material_name}   The display name of the material (eg 'Blue PLA'
    {material_brand}   The brand of the material (eg 'Ultimaker')

     

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I forgot to answer this.

    They should be, but it is always possible a bug was introduced in Cura 5.

    This is correct. There is a number of variables in addition to what is available from the fdmprinter.def.json file. These are "application defined", hence why they are listed in that section on top of the "easily readable" document.

     

    Edit:

    I just tested all the "Application-defined patterns", and they all work as intended for me in Cura 5.

     

    How are you using these patterns?

      • 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
