Is is possible to import my Cura made Gcode, make a slight change, like Temperature, then resave it?

I am able to do this in Simplfy3D by clicking on the "Edit Process Settings" button.
THank you

    Hey Plainbum,

    There are several ways to edit your Gcode in Cura there is a post processing script. 
    But I believe that doesn't work when you load in Gcodes.

    Gcodes are basically textfiles. You can also use programs like Notepad or Notepad++ to make changes and save the file.
    But you will have to know what you are looking for. It helps if you check your gcode flavor.

    For this Ultimaker 3 Extended, the flavor is Griffin.
    So with a page like https://all3dp.com/2/3d-printer-g-code-commands-list-tutorial/ I can find the commands I am looking for. 


    I hope this helps. Good luck!

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
