Publishing a post-processing plugin

Recommended Posts

Posted · Publishing a post-processing plugin

Hello! 

 

I have made a post-processing plugin that inserts a M117 command into the gcode at layer change, which writes remaining time to the display. I have now been using it for a couple of weeks without any issues so I would like to publish it for others to enjoy. Question is tho, how do I do that? 

I've followed this packages wiki page on how to create a package containing my plugin. Problem is, this plugin should only run after the gcode have been generated, so running it as a post-processing script fits perfectly. My current installation of my script is me moving it into "\Ultimaker Cura 4.1\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts\", but I would like the installation to be easier for others. 

 

Do I make a commit to the Cura github, with my script included in "\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts\" or is it possible to create it as a package for the Marketplace? 

 

Any help or advise is highly appreciated!

Best regards, Mathew.

Making a pull request is the way to go. The post processing plugin doesn't support "sub plugins", so making a package of your script is not possible.
