Material Settings plugin

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Material Settings plugin

I'm working on a new plugin, lets the user add settings to the Print Settings tab for materials on the Materials pane of the preferences. At its simplest, it adds the "Flow" parameter to the list of print settings for materials. The plugin also adds Extensions -> Material Settings -> Configure Material Settings. This will open a dialog that lets you configure what settings will be available, so you can add arbitrary settings such as Z Offset and Linear Advance Factor (both requiring an additional plugin already available in the Marketplace). It may not yet work with all settings, let me know.




Note that a value set in the sidebar or in a profile still overrides what is set in the material. This plugin does not intend to change that.


A testing version of the plugin can be downloaded here:

For Cura 4.0 and 4.1: http://files.fieldofview.com/cura/MaterialSettingsPlugin-v6.0.0-2019-06-14T14_49_58Z.curapackage

For Cura 3.5 and 3.6 (untested): http://files.fieldofview.com/cura/MaterialSettingsPlugin-v5.0.0-2019-06-14T14_49_58Z.curapackage


After downloading, just drop the file into a running Cura window, and restart Cura when requested.
