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.

    Dear davendw,

    I'm trying to use a saved profile as config.ini , with curaEngine what I write in console is


    CuraEngine.exe -c config.ini -o res.gcode test.stl

    but it returns an error "Failed to read config 'config.ini'"

    did find a way to sole this error ?!
