3.2.1 AppImage where to save Postprocessing Scripts


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3.2.1 AppImage where to save Postprocessing Scripts

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 ...

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
