Posted · View Slic3r gcode in Cura!

Hello,

the gcode view of cura is very good. You can see each line and find bad pices, that will perhaps not work. (Hangovers and support material).

I'm experimenting with newest slic3r slicer. It generates different support material. (less material waste).

I found a way to show the gcode from Slic3r. I'ts amazing to see, how differnet the support material in slic3r is:

You can see, that the support material will not work ^^

HowTo:

Go in Slic3r settings->G-code and enable Verbose G-Code

In Layer Change G-Code input: ";LAYER:660" (without quotes)

Create g-code in slic3r and rename the file to %1_export.gcode

%1 is your stl filename

Sample:

source file:

Fizgig_Gargoyle.stl

gcode filename must be:

Fizgig_Gargoyle_export.gcode

Cura will automatic load this gcode file if you load the stl file.

PS:

Sample is:
