Posted · Advice to update a "Tool" Qml plugin file

Hello,

I'm looking for a code solution to update the "Tool" plugins for the release 5.0 of Cura.  How to specify the right QML file according to the QT release ?  In these plugins.

 

The tool_panel property is specified in the   "__init__.py" file IE : "tool_panel": "TranslateTool.qml",

 

Is it possible to change this property after the init ?

 

Best regards,

 

Cuq

    As usual with me : it's not clean but it's working ... Any advice for a better  or more elegant solution ?

        return { "tool": CustomSupportsCylinder.CustomSupportsCylinder() }

    If you dislike the unused import, you could use the Cura version instead:

        cura_version = Version(Application.getInstance().getVersion())
    
        tool_panel_path = "resources/qml/MeasureTool.qml"
        if cura_version < Version("5.0.0") and cura_version.getMajor() > 0:
            tool_panel_path = "resources/qml_qt5/MeasureTool.qml"

    But then you need to import UM.Version and UM.Application. Choose your poison.

    (good to see that you have decided to update your plugins afterall)

    As usual @fieldOfView your analyse is very acurate. Yes I feal this PyQt6 import not very elegant. But if there is no other simple solution...  I will use the french expression : Choose between the plague and the cholera ... I will take the plague 

    Thanks for your feedback ... 

     

    And it's not because I update my plugins that I will make them available on the marketplace. I think I'm still waiting for a stable version of Cura 😄

    So the Plague for Cura 5.0:

     

    VERSION_QT5 = False
    try:
        from PyQt6.QtCore import QT_VERSION_STR
    except ImportError:
        VERSION_QT5 = True

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.
