Posted (edited) · custom post processor script not appearing on the list

my printer use a lerdge 2 in 1-s1 hotend and i need to create the gcode routine to swtich material, im making a custom post processor to do that, im not done but my code wont appear on the list, here is the code 

import re #To perform the search and replace.

from ..Script import Script

class switchMaterial(Script):
    """switch Material

    def getSettingDataString(self):
        return """{
            "name": "switch material",
            "key": "switch_Material",
            "metadata": {},
            "version": 1,
                    "label": "retraction",
                    "description": "Amount of retraction to get the previous filament out of the way",
                    "type": "float",
                    "default_value": "40.0"
                    "label": "speed",
                    "description": "Speed of retraction",
                    "type": "integer",
                    "default_value": "200"

    def execute(self, data):
        retraction = self.getSettingDataString("retraction")
        speed = self.getSettingDataString("speed")
        pre_fix = "\nT"
        firstTime = True
        current_tool = 0
        last_position = 0
        text = ""
        for layer_number, layer in enumerate(data):
            for ocurrence in re.finditer(pre_fix,layer):
                current_tool = int(layer[ocurrence.end()])
                if firstTime:
                    firstTime = False
                    text = layer[:ocurrence.start()]
                    if current_tool == 1:
                        text += "T0\nM104 S{material_print_temperature, 0}\nM105\nM109 S{material_print_temperature, 0}\nM83\nG0 X0 Y0\nG0 E-%.2f F%i\nT1\n"%(retraction,speed)
                    last_position = ocurrence.end()
                    if current_tool == 0:
                        text = layer[:ocurrence.start()]
                        text = layer[:ocurrence.start()]
            data[layer_number] =  text #Replace all.
        return data

i dont know why it isnt showing, i try put on ...\AppData\Roaming\cura\4.12\scripts and on C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.12.1\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts, but nothing worka and yes i close and open cura to update the list, already try restarting the pc

    but in the line 15 of my code i dont see why it need a comma, im kinda newbie on python, or that is missing on the decoder.py ?

    That's to make it valid JSON.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
