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)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
