Is there a mailing list or forum just for developers of Cura?  I need help with my printer definition, and I don't think this forum is the best place for questions about the creating JSON files.

    It's fine - I think this list is probably best place to ask about creating your own printer definition.  I'd start by looking at the other json files for other printers.

    I've been doing that, but there's I can't find any actual documentation for the contents of the JSON files.  My printer definition works, but I want to perfect it.

    Just quote parts of the file and ask one or two questions at a time.  e.g. "obviously this part calculates the line width but what does this thing here do circled in red?"

    So if you have any questions, feel free to ask them.

     

    In that case... What I would really like to know is if there is any way to access the depth buffer of the SelectionPass ;-)

    I think the only way to do that would be to add an extra pass (eg; DepthPass) that returns a depth image.

    With an additional pass I could (probably) use a shader to copy gl_FragCoord into gl_FragColor, and access the depth info from there. Such a shame though, because SelectionPass already has a perfectly usable depth buffer, but I can't seem to find a way to access it.

    /on-topic

    Another great way to interact with the Cura developers and contributors is via GitHub: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues. Most technical conversations are held over there.

    The ability to click on areas of the model where you don't want support.
