Hi All,


I am new in 3D printer and g code. I have a model. I know how to use the model to generate g-code in cura. The model is cylinder. I would like to generate a g-code that use g2/g3 g code. is it possible ?

When I try to slice, CURA can generate g-code with G1 command. But I do not know how to generate g-code by g2/g3 command.

the model is like below

    See the ArcWelder plugin in the Marketplace. After installing it, you have to enable the "Arc Welder" setting in the "Special Modes" section.


    A word of warning: Not all printers (or actually firmware versions) support G2/G3 commands.
