Opening external GCode in Cura doesn't work?

Recommended Posts

I'm afraid you probably won't get Cura to show this gcode.

I was just able to reconstruct the issue with a slic3r generated gcode. In Cura 14.01 there was some not very reasonable display of one layer. I guess Daid supressed this nonsense in 14.03+.

If a Cura generated gcode file is loaded in 14.03, the different shells and infills are displayed as normal in layer view. Thus, Cura reads its own comments in the gcode. It's not very surprising that it fails to load a gcode produced by a different software due to the lack of these comments.

For the time being only Daid might actually be able to help you... :huh:

However, if you want to have a look at a gcode file layer by layer, I can recommend to you the viewer at http://gcode.ws.
