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).
