Customizing 'Other:' options in Quickprint


Recommended Posts

Posted · Customizing 'Other:' options in Quickprint

I've been scouring the forums and my Cura folder hierarchy but haven't been able to find anything related to customizing the "Other:" options in Cura. I was hoping to add a "Brim" checkbox next to the "Print support structure" checkbox.

Is this possible, or will I just need to make other quickprint profiles with Brim options in them?

Thanks in advance!

    So through some more thorough looking, I've found the code that makes the support checkbox in the Quickprint settings.

    It's the "simpleMode.py" file in the "Cura_15.04.3\Cura\gui\" folder that defines the "Print with support" checkbox and then later directs the profile being created piecemeal by that interface to flag the support script to run with default options.

    I don't have high hopes for my own efforts here, but I'll put my best scripter's hat on and see if I can get that to create a "Brim" checkbox and also flag the brim script.

    If I get this working, I'll post my code back.

    So that support generation checkbox is created by a series of hardcoded functions in the "simpleMode.py" script in the "Cura_15.04.3\Cura\gui\" folder.

    I'll mess around with it and see if I can get it to add a checkbox and call out to the Brim generation function like this one does with support.
