Plug-in scripts folder appears to be empty


Recommended Posts

Posted · Plug-in scripts folder appears to be empty

I am using Cura 3.2.1 on a Mac (10.13.4). My Cura is working fine. I am hoping to add a script under extensions -> post-processing -> modify G-Code. Right now I see 8 scripts ("pause at height" down to "tweak at Z"). I read elsewhere that I can make my own and add them at the path indicated by Help -> Show Configuration Folder.

 

When I go to that folder ( /Users/username/Library/Application\ Support/cura/3.2/scripts ) it is empty, and I can't find the location of the python scripts elsewhere. Can anyone suggest where else to look (or how else to add a script)?

 

The reason I want to modify the G-Code is that Cura is inserting extra M109 S200 T0 commands every time the extruder switches, and even though I am not letting the extruders cool down it is making the program halt for 10-60 seconds while the M109 completes.

Thanks!

Chris

    The standard scripts can be found in the Package Contents of the application bundle. Right click on the Cura.app, select Show Package contents, and navigate to Contents/resources/scripts (or similar, this is by head).

     

    Your own scripts go into the Application Support folder you found.
