Execute PostProcessing Plugin - bug or feature?

Recommended Posts

I wrote a little PostProcessing Plugin. After I clik Extensions / Post Processing / Modify G-Code menu, I  can select it, I can set paramteres.

I can load any stl, everything working fine. But...

If I click Save to removable drive or Save to File button then the plugin will be executed, if I click Print via USB then the plugin  will not executed.

I'm sad, because I always printi via USB, and  it's very uncomfortable for me.

So, is it a normal working method, the post processings plugins executed only when I save G code?

Or is it a bug,  the post processings plugins should execute, when I'm printing via USB?


(I tested it with Cura 3.6 and 4.0 beta.)

    • "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.
