Hello everyone,

 

I have a 4-extruder printer.

 

I want to add tool change button in CURA interface which run with one click. (like image)

 

I can use python, but my coding level is beginner.

 

Please, let me know.

 

Thank you for your attention.

You can write your own plugin, but be aware that you are limited what you can do with plugins. 

A good starting point is the GitHub page https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Plugin-Directory and then check some example plugins. 

 

I never wrote a plugin for Cura, but I doubt you can put the buttons like you show on your screenshot.

Let me add my own perspective from writing plugins. Basically anything is possible, but it is not all very easy.

 

To get started, I would recommend to take it one step at a time. First implement what you want to do using an "extension plugin":

https://github.com/Ultimaker/UraniumExampleExtensionPlugin

Instead of having your buttons on the main screen like that, you can make a window that contains the buttons (which can be accessed via the Extensions menu).

Thank you everyone.

 

I am studying link example.

 

I hope I can make my own plugin.
