Manual for developing cura plugins

Recommended Posts

What sort of plugins would you like to develop?

The old Cura had "plugins" for postprocessing gcode. The new Cura has those as well, but calls them "scripts". The new Cura also has many "plugins"; almost everything from USB printing to Layer View, from Cura Connect to moving, scaling and rotating models, all of that is implemented as "plugins".

So, what sort of "plugins" would you like to create?

No, there are no tutorials as far as I am aware, but I could point you to simple plugins that are relatively easy to understand and learn from.
