Can I use Cura generated G-codes in Zmorph 3D printer?

Zmorph comes with its own slicing software (Voxelizer) but it only takes 2D drawing as input and layer height is the only parameter than can be changed so that entire 2D drawing gets increase in height. I wanted to print objects as shown here:

Curved shapes

I tried to create G-code in Cura and later use in Zmorph but the nozzle was going below the print bed when print is given so that i have to abort the print.

Voxelizer is multi-purpose software that uses 5 to 7 different presets for the FAB and VX respectively. It decides upon what is available in options based on settings.

The single and dual extruder setup takes a whole load of data formats, including ones not commonly found in most other slicers:

enter image description here

The paste extruder setup and Laser setup only take .dxf, .svg and bitmap (.jpg, .bmp, .png) files:

enter image description here

The CNC setup features a different set of available extensions - including 2D files:

enter image description here

For a 3D model, use the extruder setups. It does not appear as if the software uses a special G-code format but works with derivates of the Marlin G-code library. To swap between setups, click in the top left corner, as you can see in this test-slice I ran:

  • $\begingroup$ Whether its possible to export GCode created in other slicing softwares are run in Zmorph printer ? $\endgroup$ – Prithviraj V Feb 4 at 6:30
  • $\begingroup$ @PrithvirajV yes, the resulting G-code I got with similar settings in Voxelizer (for FDM settups, NOT paste) and from Cura is similar. $\endgroup$ – Trish Feb 4 at 7:45
