Get Layer Height in Script for Post-Processing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Get Layer Height in Script for Post-Processing


I was trying to write a script for Post Processing plugin, but I don't get how to read the Layer Height set by the user in the side bar ("Print Settings). I have read how to read parameters about the machines and the extruders, but I didn't find the "api" to read sidebar values.

    In the case of layer_height, which is a global setting, you need to do it like this:


    Application.getInstance().getGlobalContainerStack().getProperty("layer_height", "value")

    Thanks, this is what I was looking for! Can you link the page where this "Property" are documented?

    Unfortunetly there is no real documentation for these scripts or plugins ...   If you need some informations you must go directly in the source code . For this type of informations I'm reading directly the  fdmprinter.def.json Jason file   https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blob/master/resources/definitions/fdmprinter.def.json


    You can find in this file every parameters associaed with a printer and for each parameters existing proterties.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
