Plugin development: How to grey-out a model?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Plugin development: How to grey-out a model?



I am trying to develop a new plugin for Cura. One of the features I am thinking of requires temporarily greying out the selected model in the workspace. By greying out I mean setting the object unslicable in that striped yellow-grey pattern. I couldn't unfortunately find an appropriate function that could do such thing on Cura GitHub. Am I missing on something?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You could try with CuraSceneNode.setOutsideBuildArea(True), but as soon as you change the scene Cura will notice that the node is not actually outside the build area and "reenable" it.
