the 3d printer firmware marlin supports true arcs and b-spline g-code commands. This has the potential for prints with better surface finish and smoother movement. Also the step of meshing the part can be skipped and parts have truly curved surfaces instead of faceted ones.
My question is: Has someone experimented with exporting sliced geometry (curves) from GH and managed to import these layers into a 3d Printing software?
In theory you could program all the functionality ( like infill, …) also in Grasshopper, but ideally this along with printer specific settings would be handled by the external software.
My plan would be to use contour to slice a 3d model then use something like this to approximate the layer curve with a series of arcs.
