How can I edit gcode layers ?

Recommended Posts

aiiiee Alain

Yaisse, itiz possibeul, uiou opeune wize "bloc note" aure " notepad ++" aindeu uiou délaitte ze lailleur ;)

Sinon plus sérieusement, cura ne fait pas ça alain, par contre dans les options tu as découpe inférieure , tu mets une valeur en millimètre qui correspond à la taille de tes 4 première couche et la pièce s'enfonce dans le plateau.

Sinon tu ouvres ton gcode et tu vires les layers en question.

Edit ( thanks peetersm ) : Si tu utilises la methode " bloc note " il faut ajuster le plateau au démarrage avec les vis pour compenser l'origine du Z.

Rigs is right you can open with a basic text editing program and see the layers identified with comments like

;layer 0

Etc

But the problem with just removing the text for the first 4 layers would be that the Z height would be off for the rest of the print.

Better to use cura advanced settings and enter the amount of mm you want removed from the bottom "cut off object bottom" of the model and generate your gcode that way.

You're right peetersm, this method is not perfect because it will adjust the bed with the screws at the skirt time.

the best method is " cut off objet bottom " in french " découpe inférieure ".

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
