Question about gcode generated by Cura
peirof last edited by
recently, today, I have edited a gcode file (made with Cura) ... and one thing that has caught my attention, is that the entire file is made up of movements type G1 (straight), there are no G2-G3 (Curves ) ...
If the Slicer used it, wouldn't it improve the finish of the pieces, a bit?
Is there any slicer that creates gcode files, with G2 / G3 movements? (or all work with lines).
In what cases are they used? Cnc?

@peirof I think this is because stl files are made from triangles. So there are no curves.
Perhaps in cnc mode curves are used for "tool radius correction"...

@peirof you can use Arc welder to convert into G2/G3 and there is a plugin for cura for this
