Saving and loading scripts?

Recommended Posts

The situation: I have an STL that I use as a heat tower. I have used the "Change at height" script to alter the nozzle temperature progressively throughout the print, and saved it both as GCODE and as a 3MF project file.

 

This script is persistent the next time I open Cura, when it is not necessarily appropriate, and I have to delete it manually for the next job.

 

If I then load the Heat Tower 3MF project file, Cura loads all the print parameters I had set for it, but doesn't load the temperature changing script. If I want to reenable that, I have to recreate it from scratch.

 

Is there any way I can save a script so that I don't have to rebuild it every time I want to use it? Or better yet, can I save a project file with the script intact so that it loads with the project?

    • "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.
