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
