Can I edit gcode before usb print?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Can I edit gcode before usb print?

I am having an issue with the latest cura, I am printing some tpu so I’ve set the temp to 245deg in cura but the gcode always has 190deg so I have the edit the gcode directly and then put on sd card.


I prefer to print over usb but I can’t find a way to edit the sliced gcode data before sending to print down usb; is it even possible in cura?


also any ideas why latest cura won’t save the correct temp to the gcode? It must be a bug, the previous version worked fine.

    I never used USB printing, too unreliable, but Cura has no ability to edit the gcode before sending. But you can save the gcode, edit in your text editor and then load it back and send it to Cura. Should be possible.
