CuraEngine Config file.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an example of the config file used in the command line CuraEngine? Is just filled with the settings seen in settings.cpp?

Also, if I wanted to create a solid fill object should I be trying to set all the layers to skin? Is there a specific setting for that?

I don't know about command line. But there are 2 ways to make solid layers - one is set the skin to say 200mm. That works fine and gives you concentric fill. Or you can set the infill to 100% which gives you diagonal fill which alternates each layer. 100% infill is not much (any?) stronger than 50% infill but is heavier, uses more PLA and takes longer to print.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
