Posted · problems with curaengine

Hello,everyone. I am a newbie to curaengine. I taped the this to the command line:

curatest -v -o d://test.gcode d://test.stl

and here are the results:

Default config 'default.cfg' not used

Loading d://test.stl from disk...

Analyzing and optimizing model...

Obviously the layerthickness can be read, but why it shows that default config not used? And the gcode I got is not complete either.

G91 ;relative positioning

G1 E-1 F300 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure

G1 Z+0.5 E-5 X-20 Y-20 F9000 ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops, so the head is out of the way

M84 ;steppers off

G90 ;absolute positioning


I pondered the error must be the readsettings function in setting.cpp, which is a paradox due to the layerthickness item. Can anyone tell me where I went wrong and how to write my own config files?


Thank you very muck.
