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.

    • 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.
