How to make a Pycharm project of cura?

Recommended Posts

I've been confused for days.

I'm the "hello world" of Cura.

I want buil cura3.3 project by Pycharm, I don't know the process to build it.

I have read the readme and wiki in github-Ultimaker/Cura , but, it make me confused.


please make a demonstration,like: first step, second step, and where did the file in the project come from?


If you have a diagram of the project(like my attachment), that would be great


thank you very much!

You need all of Uranium, not just the UM folder. The UM folder should be in the PYTHONPATH when Cura is run.


I also have a "bin" folder at the same level as Cura and Uranium that contains CuraEngine.exe, Arcus.pyd, Savitar.pyd, and a bunch of runtime dlls.

But since OP is having trouble checking out the right repositories, I don't think OP has succeeded in building Arcus and Savitar (or CuraEngine) on Windows yet. (I know I still haven't, after 2.5 years of Cura development on Windows)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
