Problems with using CuraEngine from command line

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problems with using CuraEngine from command line

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to use CuraEngine from the commandline.

1) First attempt was to pass -s parameters one by one, it works but I get the different results in comparing with GCode generated from the Cura GUI.

Passed parameters are exactly the same in both cases (checked in debugger)

So the first question is why this difference happens? (different coordinates)

2) Second attempt was to use INI file generated from Cura GUI, but I see that this format is unsupported by CuraEngine. So the second question is where I can find the correct format of configuration file supported by CuraEngine ?

Thanks in advance.

Timur.

If you're somewhat familliar with coding, you could check the github. The setting code there is reasonably simple.

Hi Guys,

I use command line for executing Cura 2.5 in Matlab. I want to change layer height, part orientation and filling angle and providing different G-code.

I start to generate different json file for different layer height but I dont know how i must change the orientation? would you please tell me how I can do it?

commandline=[str ' slice' ' -j ' definition ' -s mesh_rotation_matrix="[[1,0,0],[0,1,0],[0,0,1]]" ' ' -l ' stl ' -o ' stroutput '.gcode'];

str is CuraEngine.exe file and deffinition is innovo_inventor' num2str(j) '.json which is generated for different layer height.

Thanks in advance

Elnaz
