Plugin to replace the extrusion g-code with my laser on/off function M126,M127)

Recommended Posts

Hi, looking to get up and running using the cura software for my 3d printer. Its a uv resin curing printer so uses a laser to cure the solution as it rises from the vat.

My problem is that when i generate g-code its creates it as to think there is Extrusion happening, but what i need to do is replace this with my laser function (M126 on) and (M127 off) through out the entire code. how would this be achieved?

I have read about people creating a plugin for it or writing a script for it but i would not know how to do that. Any advise or where to go would be great.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
