Cura 4.0 + Z-seam additions to JSON Definition file

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.0 + Z-seam additions to JSON Definition file

Would like to add these two features to my model.def.json file:

Z Seam Alignment = Sharpest Corner

Seam Corner Preference = Hide Seam

 

I don't want to crash and debug by just guessing, so is this close to the proper format in the JSON file?

        "z_seam_alignment": { "value": "'Sharpest Corner'"},
        "z_seam_corner": { "value": "'Hide'"},

Why not save a custom profile in Cura?

Oh, I could...but that creates a 3mf file that I can't read in Notepad++.

 

But after reading more about "sharpest corner" and I am rethinking adding that definition. It doesn't seem to be the best selection for most models, especially anything cubic. But it would be nice to know all the programmatic definitions if anyone wants to create their own JSON definition file.

The 3mf is a project file, but I mean a custom profile, like the predefined ones (Fast, Normal, ...)

You can change the settings as you want and then save this profile for future use. So I see no need to modify the JSON file directly. With profiles, you have also the advantage to select between different profiles to fit your needs, depending on your model, shape or whatever.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
