CURA 2.4 and Post processing plugins issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA 2.4 and Post processing plugins issue

hello,

I wrote a post processing plugin for autolevel.

It works well on CURA 2.1.3, but it's not recognized by CURA 2.4

Is there something to do to add Post processing plugin in CURA 2.4 ?

I just put the .py file in plugin file, as usual, and restart CURA

thanks for your help

the plugin is to determine the area used by the first layer to optimize auto-leveling

I never learn python, so I took exemple from other plugins.

it searches min and max X Y position of G1 command and replace a specific string of the start gcode by the optimized G29 L R F B command

 

from ..Script import Scriptfrom UM.Logger import Loggerimport reclass G29_PH(Script):   def __init__(self):       super().__init__()   def getSettingData(self):       return {            "label":"G29 by PH",           "key": "G29_PH",           "settings":            {               "AutoLevel":                {                   "label": "G29 by PH",                   "description": "determine Autolevel optimise",                   "type": "boolean",                   "default": False,                   "visible": True               },               "Marge":               {                   "label": "Marge",                   "description": "Marge ajoutee a la zone d'impression pour l'autolevel",                   "unit": "mm",                   "type": "float",                   "default": 2.0,                   "visible": True,                   "enabled": "AutoLevel == True"               },             }           }       }   def getValue(self, line, key, default = None):        if not key in line or (";" in line and line.find(key) > line.find(";") and not ";TweakAtZ" in key and not ";LAYER:" in key):           return default       subPart = line[line.find(key) + len(key):] #allows for string lengths larger than 1       if ";TweakAtZ" in key:           m = re.search("^[0-4]", subPart)       elif ";LAYER:" in key:           m = re.search("^[+-]?[0-9]*", subPart)       else:           #the minus at the beginning allows for negative values, e.g. for delta printers           m = re.search("^[-]?[0-9]+\.?[0-9]*", subPart)       if m == None:           return default       try:           return float(m.group(0))       except:           return default   def execute(self, data):       lines = data[1].split("\n")       data1_temp = ""       bbL = None       bbR = None       bbF = None       bbB = None       layer = -1       marge = self.getSettingValueByKey("Marge")       for line in lines:           if ";LAYER:" in line: #new layer no. found               layer = self.getValue(line, ";LAYER:", layer)           if "G1 " in line and layer == 0 :               x = self.getValue(line, "X", None)               y = self.getValue(line, "Y", None)               if x != None:                   if bbL == None:                       bbL = x                   else :                           if x < bbL:                           bbL = x;                   if bbR == None:                       bbR = x                   else :                       if x > bbR:                           bbR = x;               if y != None:                   if bbB == None:                       bbB = y                   else :                           if y > bbB:                           bbB = y;                   if bbF == None:                       bbF = y                   else :                           if y < bbF:                           bbF = y;       bbL -= marge       bbR += marge       bbF -= marge       bbB += marge       for line in lines:           if "G29 L R F B ;Auto Bed Leveling" in line:               data1_temp += "G29 L" + repr(bbL) +" R" + repr(bbR) +  " F" + repr(bbF) + " B" + repr(bbB) +"; PH Auto Bed Leveling\n"           else:               data1_temp += line + "\n"       data[1] = data1_temp       # "G29 L R F B ;Auto Bed Leveling"       return data

It works well on my MAC with CURA 2.1.3

but not on my Win10 with CURA 2.4 : the list of post processing plugin show only one plugin when I had the file (normally it shows 4)

an other issue/question :

is it normal than even on CURA 2.1.3 the post processing is not saved when I reopen CURA ?

Hello,

could you tell me how I could add a python script to cura 2.4 on a Mac.

I tried to place it in the plugins folder under the cura folder, but won't work.

It's a python script with works under windows.

Thank you for your feedback.

Regards

Ralf

The API has changed between 2.1 and 2.3 - look at existing plugins to see what's changed (getSettingData vs getSettingDataString)

Yes, it is "by design"

If you are talking about the PostProcessing scripts, on OSX they are in Cura.app/Contents/Resources/plugins/plugins/PostProcessingPlugin/scripts/

At the place you installed Cura...

So for most people it would be: /Applications/Cura.app/Contents/Resources/plugins/plugins/PostProcessingPlugin/scripts/ (unless you installed it somewhere else)

... and where will Cura 2.4 be installed when installed(?) or run from Cura-2.4.0.AppImage-Install (the new Linux installer)?

I see no reason why it should be different in 2.4...

But I can't answer that formally, my personal experience tells me it is not always a good idea to be early adopter of new Cura releases, so I am still with 2.3 for now ;)
