  1. @Xpect - Awesome! I'll place a link from the 3D20 plugin to your github. If you want to release a complete plugin feel free to fork my plugin and make a 3D45 version - it shouldn't be too much work and will automate the installation of the files. If you have any questions feel free to ping me. Cheers
  2. @lenigma1 The machine definitions should have a "machine_start_gcode" section in them. For instance the 3D20's is here When I have the 3D20 selected as the printer and I save to file either in gcode or g3drem format and open the gcode/g3drem file in a text editor I get first some setup gcode ;TIME:6054 ;Filament used: 5.11223m ;Layer height: 0.2 ;MINX:-35.139 ;MINY:-20.748 ;MINZ:0.25 ;MAXX:32.122 ;MAXY:20.724 ;MAXZ:47.85 ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 4.8.0 M104 S220 M105 M109 S220 M82 ;absolute extrusion mode which is immediately followed by the gcode defin
  3. @eduncan911 - Thanks for sharing the information - I hope you don't mind, but I've linked to your posts from the 3D20 plugin's Issue #20 page where I try to collect information for 3D40/3D45 users. I don't have a 3D40/3D45 so I can't support either printer in my plugin, but I do occasionally get asked about them, so I appreciate people like you sharing the information about how to get them working. Cheers
  4. Cheers @tontze - If you follow the instructions in the links above and manage to get it working please feel free to post instructions for others - you're not the first to ask the question and anything you learn would be helpful for others. FWIW I'm pretty sure some other people have gotten the 3D40/3D45 working with the plugin. The other good news is that Dremel has moved away from proprietary formats, and has started accepting normal gcode files with newer firmware updates - so if you can get the 3D40 machine definition installed into Cura you should be able to print to the 3D40 even w
  5. Hi @tontze From the Frequently Asked Questions section of the plugin's page:
  6. Hi @osupk8 As of July 12, 2018 I'm happy to report that the plugin is now part of the cura toolbox. Please note that I don't check this forum very often and the good folks at Ultimaker aren't responsible for the plugin working or not working. If you encounter issues in the future I'd welcome your feedback by reporting them here: https://github.com/timmehtimmeh/Cura-Dremel-3D20-Plugin/issues
  7. @ctbeke - First and foremost, thanks for Cura - what an awesome piece of software! Also thanks for the heads up on the upcoming breaking changes, and the info on the container provider. I'll take a look at the Cura 3.2 beta and see what needs to change in the dremel plugin to make it compatible. I wouldn't necessarily expect Ultimaker to test this plugin, as the plugin is specifically designed to export the proprietary Dremel format for the old/deprecated Dremel 3D20, and was more of a personal project that I thought maybe some other people could use.

  8. If you do run into issues with the plugin please feel free to raise them in github https://github.com/timmehtimmeh/Cura-Dremel-3D20-Plugin/issues - I don't regularly monitor forums, so it's a fortunate coincidence that I ran across your question. I also just created a simple windows batch file and mac script that will allow you to easily install all the plugin items - all you need to do is edit two lines that point to the CURA installation directory and the directory where you downloaded the dremel plugin Cheers!
  9. Hi Christophe - I'm the one who created that plugin. Unfortunately I've tried several times to create a self-contained plugin for cura using Cura's create_plugin.py file (https://github.com/Ultimaker/Uranium/blob/master/create_plugin.py) but something isn't working with the plugin that it creates and Cura version 3.0+. If you do figure out how to create a plugin for Cura 3.0+ please feel free to raise an issue or make a pull request on https://github.com/timmehtimmeh/Cura-Dremel-3D20-Plugin Edit: I just tried the create_plugin.py file again, and it seems that the plugin creatio
  10. Hi (two years later =) I've hacked together a cura 3 plugin that will export the .g3drem file for the Dremel Idea Builder 3D20 You can find the plugin here: https://github.com/timmehtimmeh/Cura-Dremel-3D20-Plugin feel free to give it a try
