Edit gcode-Headers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Edit gcode-Headers

Hello everyone,


I just recently switched my DIY-Printer to use Klipper with Mainsail and there is a neat View for your GCode-Files that will use the Headers in the File to show attributes like Layer-Height, Object Height and so on. It could also show Filament-Type and Nozzle-Diameter which would be very helpful but is looks like Cura does not add those Headers into the File.

Did I just not find this Option or is there maybe a Plugin that can add more Information to the GCode-File?

For clarification, I am talking about those Headers in the beginning of the file like `; Filemant used: 5.7407m`

;Filament used: 5.7407m
;Layer height: 0.25

      • 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.
