Yes, that is possible. It is however not possible to change settings and reslice the model from the gcode, because the model is not included in the gcode file.

    That's good news. I have a gcode file I'd like to read and see the settings. How do I proceed?

    There are two things you can do with a gcode file:

     

    * Just open it via File -> Open..., and it will show you the toolpath (ie: the preview of the print). Not the settings though.

    * open it as a profile via the Profiles page of the preferences, and it will show you the settings as a new profile.

    What you see is the value changes you made from the profile you used, but not the values from the actual profile. That is all that is saved in the gcode file.
