Problems with using CuraEngine from command line

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.

     

    Very simple, checking it already 2 days, thank you :mrgreen:

    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

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
