Sizeable Window

Recommended Posts

Just a thought... it would be really great if the main Cura window were sizable. Running Cura 2.4.0 under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, I find that it is necessary to auto hide the top and bottom panels to be able to see all of the Cura window. If I don't hide those bars, then I am unable to see the [save to File] button, the object dimensions, the print time and the filament usage. If I were to be able to size the Cura window down a bit like I can every other program I run, I wouldn't have this trouble. And I really hate autohiding bars.

I had better be more specific. I am able to resize the window left to right, but not up and down.

Because otherwise things would not fit nicely. Fortunately the minimum size is fairly easy to alter:

* Inside the Cura folder, find /resources/themes/cura/theme.json.

* In that file, find "window_minimum_size".

* The numbers after that are the minimum size in pixels, divided by a dpi-related number. Change them to eg [70, 40].

* Restart Cura

    • 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.
