added .py script from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1298948   VaryTempWithHeightCura3.py

to allow variation of extruder temperature with heght.

Placed it in C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 3.0\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts\

 

Started Cura against an .stl file.

    Well, if you are running Cura 3.2.1, I would say that you should use C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 3.2 instead of \Ultimaker Cura 3.0.

    But the better place to put the script is in the configuration folder. In Cura go to Help -> Show configuration folder. In the folder that opens, there will be a folder named "scripts". Put your script in there.

    in addition:  read the comments on thingiverse...

    The script won't load and throws an error because the file name differs from the class name contained in the file. Rename the file to:

    VaryTempWithHeight.py

     

    The file "cura.log" in the configuration folder should contain appropriate error messages (or warning), if a script can not be loaded.
