Get Layer Height in Script for Post-Processing

Posted · Get Layer Height in Script for Post-Processing

Hi,

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.
