Custom shaped print areas

Recommended Posts

Posted · Custom shaped print areas

I have an obsession building printers with strange kinematics. They tend to have non-square and non-elliptical print areas. 

Is there a way to define a custom print area in CURA?


I could write an addon/plugin to CURA if the APIs are exposed...

Ok first... I have no real clue about the technique behind cura, but I’m thinking cura has the option to define forbidden area’s of the platform, so perhaps that’s current functionality you can use? You can define the area’s in the printer definition file.
