GCode by Layer?

Postby cmcgrath5035 » Sat Apr 12, 2014 7:41 pm

Is there a relatively straightforward tweak to the machine configuration files that would force GCode to be created "by layer" but all in the same file?
I realize layers can me named arbitrarily, so perhaps creating Gcode by layer name ion alphabetical order would be the default.

Clearly, I can make layers visible one a a time, generate code, then concatenate them without a bunch of effort.

No, such an option has not been implemented for the QCAD/CAM add-on out of the box. It could be implemented in your configuration, but would definitely require some work.
