Can Time Lapse Script Settings be Saved?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can Time Lapse Script Settings be Saved?

Is there some way to save the settings for the Time Lapse script? My camera needs a little longer to react to the signal to take a shot. So I delay the movement of the bed by 900m/s from the default 700m/s. Seems to do the trick. The other setting I regularly change is Park Print Head Y. It seems to default to 190mm, but my bed needs to be extended to 300mm to trip the trigger I have set up for the camera.  In addition to those the Retraction Distance seems to default to 0mm.
I can't seem to find any way of saving these settings as a default.

    I think you have to customize the plugin file.  On my Windows computer it is in C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.13.1\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts.  You can open "TimeLapse.py" in a text editor and make the changes.

                        "label": "Pause length",
                        "description": "How long to wait (in ms) after camera was triggered.",
                        "type": "int",
                        "default_value": 900,
                        "minimum_value": 0,
                        "unit": "ms"

                        "label": "Park Print Head Y",
                        "description": "What Y location does the head move to for photo.",
                        "unit": "mm",
                        "type": "float",
                        "default_value": 300,
                        "enabled": "park_print_head"


    When you update Cura to a newer version you would need to do this again.
