gcode to third party tool

Posted · gcode to third party tool

I have developed a command line tool that lets me send gcode to my XYZ miniMaker printer.  It is working well but currently I have to save a gcode file out of cura and then manually send it to the printer.  Is there a plugin or other trick that would let me launch my tool directly from Cura?  I have looked around but don't see any mention of this kind of a plugin anywhere.  Ideally it would spin off into its own process and not block cura from operating while the print is in progress.
