Help for Cura Plugin to modify gcode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Help for Cura Plugin to modify gcode

Hi all,

I want to write a cura plugin that uses the created gcode for a included model and rewrites it to another gcode file.

The question is, at what time are the cura plugins called? When loading the model file? Is it somehow possible to get the gcode at this time? If yes, could anyone tell my how I can get to this in the python code?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Crema

In the new Cura (2.1), you can create a plugin for almost everything (Views, tools, model loading / writing, etc).

The old Cura only had post processing 'plugins' (the new Cura also has them; https://github.com/nallath/PostProcessingPlugin).

The post processing of the new Cura is called when you save the g-code.

    • "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.
