Post processing plugin

Recommended Posts

A quick update for those of you who want the tweak at z, pause at height and others back. I've been working on a plugin that allows for the loading & execution of such scripts.

The layout is still rubbish, localisation doesn't work correctly and it hasn't been fully tested, but I still want to share this with you guys. You can find the plugin here; https://github.com/nallath/PostProcessingPlugin . See this as an early alpha / beta.

If you want to make your own script, have a look at the examplescript (that does nothing) that is in the scripts folder. The plugin should automatically load all scripts that it finds in that folder.

You need to put the plugin in the plugins folder. The script folder is inside the PostProcessingPlugin folder

 

O.k. I got it, it should be located in :

/home/username/.local/share/cura/plugins

(the folder "plugins" must be generated by hand - would be nice to establish this folder during installation to give the user a better hint ;) )

But what's that :angry:

 

ERROR - Import error loading module PostProcessingPlugin: No module named 'PostProcessingPlugin.scripts.Test'

 

Commented out the problematic line in "PostProcessingPlugin.py" and it seems to work :D

O.k. let's not talk about the optic aspects, the usability and the function ... you mentioned in your starting post "See this as an early alpha / beta." :D

But it gives a good idea how things could work ...

Jetzt grad mal auf deutsch (weil ich echt genervt bin):

diese Forums-Software ist doch einfach für die Katz!

Warum glaubt die Software ausgerechnet in Code-Fragmenten wie meinem obigen rumeditieren zu müßen und da irgendwelche Geschichten reinzuschreiben !!!

Die Fehlermeldung heißt:

ERROR - Import error loading module PostProcessingPlugin: No module named 'PostProcessingPlugin.scripts.Test'

... toll im normalen Text wird nicht "autokorrigiert" ...

Whoops. I've updated the code. Should work for everyone now. If you feel like changing the GUI, feel free to do so and create a pull request. I'm going to be away next week (holiday in Germany actually) so I won't be able to look at it next week though.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
