Help for Cura Plugin to modify gcode

Recommended Posts

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,

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.
