Hello

Is there an extension or configuration I could use to batch generate gcode files from a number of stl files.

The optimum solution for me would be to point Cura to a folder of stl files and the program would slice each one using the settings in the project I currently have open and save a gcode file for each either to the same or different folder.

    using CuraEngine 

     

    CuraEngine slice -v -j ../Cura/resources/definitions/dual_extrusion_printer.def.json -o "output/test.gcode" -e1 -s infill_line_distance=0 -e0 -l "/model_1.stl" -e1 -l "fully_filled_model.stl"

    CuraEngine comes with Cura. If you have Cura installed, you also have CuraEngine.
