How to install plugins for cura on a mac

Recommended Posts

Depends on which version of Cura you are using.

The current stable version (v15.X.Y) wants the plugins here (probably, as I never tested it):

 

~/Library/Application\ Support/Cura/15.X.Y/plugins/

 

But the current v2.1 open beta wants the plugins here...but hopefully that location will change:

 

~/.cura/plugins/

Thank you for your reply!

I have cura 15.06.03 and have tried to create the following folder in my home folder (.cura/plugins/), adding the wood.py plugin to no avail. I have also tried to locate the folder: /Library/Application\ Support/Cura/15.06.03/plugins/ but cannot find it either. I have enabled view hidden folders so not sure what to do next. Really want to try this plugin out

It should be

~/Library/Application\ Support/Cura/15.06.03/plugins/

(note the tilde in front of the first slash).

And the "plugins" folder probably doesn't exist so you need to create it yourself.

    • 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.
