3.2.1 AppImage where to save Postprocessing Scripts

Recommended Posts

Just a, maybe silly, question:

Where should I store a custom-made postprocessing script that it will be recognized by the postprocessing plugin?

In 2xx versions - not using AppImages - I had the complete PostProcessingPlugin folder (including my script) in

.local/share/cura/plugins which works fine.

If I do the same in 3.2.1 I see the PostProcessingPlugin is loaded twice (I asume 1 time from the AppImage and the other

from my local folder) but my script didn't appear in the "Add a script" Selection list.

AFAIK your custom-made scripts should reside in your local configuration folder, subfolder "scripts".

Or more specific:  $USER/.local/share/cura/<Cura version>/scripts


If your script does not appear in the list, there are perhaps some hints in the log file:

$USER/.local/share/cura/<Cura version>/cura.log

Thank you @tinkergnome,

your answer finaly lead me in the right direction, placing the script in

$USER/.local/share/cura/<Cura version>/scripts

was unsuccessful and also was no hint in the log file.


But, a little more searching  brought me to:


where I could succesfully place my script.

Not that intuitive place for it, I think ...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
