Cura settings and G-Code editing
« on: October 16, 2022, 05:05:47 PM »
This is the start of a thread about How to change settings in Cura and how to easily adjust the G-Code for temperatures and so on.
I'll take actual screen shots and walk you through some quick edits you might want to do to the final G-Code Cura puts out.

I'll also offer advise on Fan settings for PETG which I've found Cura basic settings really not correct for the Vyper.
We'll also look at the Z settings on the Vyper. Yes. It self levels but I've found you might need to adjust that setting.
So I'll explain what to look for and how to adjust that.

I'll get a link to a simple quick G-Code to look at as a start. That will allow us to work on the exact same project and see the results.
You are going to edit the Bed Temp and Print temp in NotePad. It's the fastest way to adjust temps for a print!

Example files uploaded. It's a small washer that takes about a minute to print.
I included the STL and My G-Code settings from Cura.
I'll use those to show how easy it is to edit the G-Code in NotePad.
