Recovering gcode from recent history

Recommended Posts

Posted · Recovering gcode from recent history

Hello all, when I updated to Cura 4.9 I lost all of my custom profiles. I was trying to get a hold of the gcode of parts printed with those profiles to see if I could figure out what changes i had. Is there a way to retrieve the gcode or umf files of objects in the recently printed section of the digital factory? If not can anyone think of any other ways I can retrieve the gcode? I was stupid enough to never save the gcodes I always used the print over network feature.

    There is no way to download G-code for recently printed jobs (that are still visible in the 'recent history') via the user interface. However you can download the G-code for the current print job from the printer API. You could re-print the job you need the G-code for from the recent history and then use the API to download it.


    Seems like the endpoint you're looking for is http://[your_printer_ip]/api/v1/print_job/gcode. You'll need authenticate with the printer API to use this endpoint (see http://[your_printer_ip]/docs/api/#/Authentication for details about that).

      • 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
