Use CURA without GUI?

Recommended Posts

hi guys and

first of all: happy new year!

 

here's my problem in one short sentence:

i'd like to start the print of a simple ball via a button on a website.

for this i thought of running a little program on the server after having recieved the information ("button clicked") from the website. the program should manage to start the 3D-print of the "ball.STL" automatically. this means i'd have to give cura all the print-parameters and information with some (console-?)commands.

unfortunately i'm barely familiar with the functions of cura and to be honest i've no idea what kind of programming ist required to start other programms like cura with a self-written programm. i've heard something about batch-files...?

in a nutshell:

is there a way to run cura and its functions without the GUI? like a console-input... (i coulnd't find a topic refering to something like that)

any ideas/information? thanks,danke,grazie,merci...

markus

thanks a lot for the fast answer Daid!

but is there a more detailed description somewhere? The cura-manual does not mention this possibility, as far as i know/scanned the content :???:

for example concerning the following questions:

- which file/exe would i have to address?

-how would the console-code look like? what is the output-filename for? the generated gcode?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
