CuraEngine Config file.


Recommended Posts

Posted · CuraEngine Config file.

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.

        (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.
