Export the current model from a plugin

Recommended Posts

Posted · Export the current model from a plugin

I'm developping a plugin for Cura. I need to export the actual 3d object that is edited and slice in Cura. The purpose of my plugin is to visualize the 3d object on a device using Unity. This is why I need a file in any 3d format.

 

I search for some commands to call but didn't found them in the wiki of uranium nor Cura.

 

Also I want to know if it's possible to also export the sliced model ? To first call the slice process and then export the 3d model.

See LocalFileOutputDevice.requestWrite()

You can access the LocalFileOutputDevice using the OutputDeviceManager (OutputDeviceManager.getOutputDevice("local_file")

You can access the OutputDeviceManager from the CuraApplication class (CuraApplication.getInstance().getOutputDeviceManager()

 

So, in short:

CuraApplication.getInstance().getOutputDeviceManager().getOutputDevice("local_file").requestWrite()
