Make the grid that overlays the build platform transparent?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Make the grid that overlays the build platform transparent?

I am modifying my Cura UI to use a custom build platform (buildplate.stl) and would like to eliminate the grid that overlays it.

I can modify the size of the grid in the grid.shader, but I cant get rid of the opaque gray overlay.

Any suggestions?

Is that part of a particular plugin?

I dont seem to have that file anywhere in my computers Cura folder structure.

It is not trivial to edit that file on an installed version. At least not as easy as it is when running Cura from source.

Hi

 

One (somewhat longer term) solution would be to put in a feature request on Github and wait for it to be implemented.  

 

The alternative (as mentioned above) is to go in and modify the raw source code and then install from that modified source code.

 

If indeed your modified build plate is for general use, I think you would be wise to go with the feature request approach. Much easier to distribute an add on rather than a fully modified version of Cura.
