  1. Hello Leo, there are problems uploading a new release with corrections for FreeCAD >= 0.18.0. Hope I'll manage to resolve the issue together with Ultimaker soon.
  2. No, you need probably @ardrift 's patches, if you upgraded Blender. Otherwise having Blender assigned to .blend files should be enough. The new plugin version was rejected by Ultimaker. I'll try to find time soon to correct the plugin and reupload it for a review by Ultimaker.
  3. There are no changes actually. You already tested the same code before, when you downloaded the plugin package from my build system. The release of the plugin was just postponed for some time 😉
  4. By the way, do you know how we could benefit from multi-material printing using this plugin? Is there a way using macros to access single bodies? Is there even a way to design things like that in Blender or does a model always consist of one part? I'm planning to add multi-material support to my plugins soon. The SolidWorks plugin is able to do that via 3MF fileformat, but you can also export all bodies separately and merge them to a group of models (what the 3MF reader in Cura does by the way).
  5. A short follow up: Added the @ardrift 's patch to my code, announced a new version 0.3.2 and submitted the package to Ultimaker. Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
  6. Applied @ardrift 's changes on a separate branch. Feel free to download, install and test the built packages taken from here: https://thopiekar.eu:5443/cura-cad-integration/CuraBlenderPlugin/-/jobs/1368/artifacts/browse Currently, I'm too busy doing some testing, so please give feedback if it is working. Thanks!
  7. Hello @ardrift! Thank you for taking time making the needed changes to the script! I took a look onto it and it looks good for me! 👍 Will include this soon into my code and release a new version. Many thanks (again)! - Thomas
  8. @nikitas Just look into a GCode file. If there is anything specific, you will find it there, too. Regarding Putty: You can also take a look onto "Termite" (https://www.compuphase.com/software_termite.htm), if you like to use a very simple tool. Happy (printer) hacking! :)
  9. @pa9k: See: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/pull/5768
  10. Thank you @smartavionics! 💪
  11. No problem! Always a pleasure to be there for you! 🙂
  12. That is correct. During the creation of the guide there could have been a better way of showing where the macro is placed. I guess there are basically to ways of preventing this confusion: * Correcting the guidelines or adding a note there. * Replacing this guideline with one on my website. The benefit would be, that I can easily correct or add instructions, even if the plugin has already been released and installed. Thank you for mentioning that, I somehow lost this one from my scope.
  13. One difference should be quickly visible. The SolidWorks plugin was benefiting for a long time of a self-test, which ensured that SolidWorks is correctly installed. This one I extracted, cleaned up and moved into a common application library, called "CadIntegrationUtils" (short: CIU). That one consisted of no user-interface for a very long time. Since the library seemed to work fine for a long time, I decided to give it and all the other plugins a face. Long story short: The self-test was one of two tabs in the preferences dialog. Now you can find the self-test at: All you can find exactly the same menu entry at all the other Windows automation based plugins, too. These include the SolidWorks plugin, Autodesk Inventor and shortly the CATIA plugin. That's why the checks based on this technology are often just the same and therefore all the plugins can benefit from that. So if you can find this entry in the plugins menu, then you managed to install the plugin successfully. If you are noticing any issues as before, - well - then even better! 😃 Thank you for taking the time! PS: As soon as I get the CATIA plugin reviewed, I'll roll out updates for all the other plugins, too. Don't want to postpone it for much longer. Want to keep it in the release face of Cura. (As long as there are no issues of course.)
  14. A new plugin is joining the plugin family! The CATIA plugin comes basically with the features you know from the others (if you had a chance to use them before).[1] The plugin can be easily downloaded and installed on my website. You can find a very basic checklist of what needs to be done here: https://thopiekar.eu/cura/cad/catia/ Enjoy and happy designing! -------------------------------------------- [1] https://thopiekar.eu:5443/cura-cad-integration/CuraCatiaPlugin/commit/9413a9961f0782a152b9bd878adcb23ade342cbb --------------------------------------------
  15. Could someone give this build a try? https://thopiekar.eu:5443/cura-cad-integration/CuraBlenderPlugin/-/jobs/1298 There are no major changes, but I worked on some features for the SolidWorks and Inventor plugin, which could have influenced this plugin, too. Thanks! - Thomas
