Post processing script: avoid wiriting ";POSTPROCESSED" line

Posted · Post processing script: avoid wiriting ";POSTPROCESSED" line

Hello everyone in the forum!


I have a question: I'm creating a postprocessing script to modify the gcode produced by Cura.


Everything works very well, but I see that in the modified gcode the line ";POSTPROCESSED" appears. Is it possible to avoid producing this line?


Otherwise, is it possible to change the comment string ";" to a custom one?


Thank you very much for your time!

    Yes if you modify the code in the Postprocessing Plugin  (Ultimaker Cura 5.x.x\share\cura\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\PostProcessingPlugin.py  or Ultimaker Cura 4.x.x\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\PostProcessingPlugin.py)


            if ";POSTPROCESSED" not in gcode_list[0]:
                for script in self._script_list:
                        gcode_list = script.execute(gcode_list)
                    except Exception:
                        Logger.logException("e", "Exception in post-processing script.")
                if len(self._script_list):  # Add comment to g-code if any changes were made.
                    gcode_list[0] += ";POSTPROCESSED\n"
                gcode_dict[active_build_plate_id] = gcode_list
                setattr(scene, "gcode_dict", gcode_dict)
                Logger.log("e", "Already post processed")


    But you will have to do it for every new release of Cura.

    thank you for your answer, I changed that portion of code and it worked perfectly!


    I have one further question: I see that other lines are inserted at the end of the gcode and are not affected by the custom postprocessing script I've developed. These lines appear at the very end of the gcode and are something like

    ;SETTING_3 {"extruder_quality": ["[general]\\nversion = 4\\nname = Low Quality #
    ;SETTING_3 2\\ndefinition = creality_ender3pro\\n\\n[metadata]\\nsetting_version
    ;SETTING_3  = 15\\nquality_type = low\\nposition = 0\\ntype = quality_changes\\n
    ;SETTING_3 \\n[values]\\nwall_line_count = 3\\n\\n"], "global_quality": "[genera
    ;SETTING_3 l]\\nversion = 4\\nname = Low Quality #2\\ndefinition = creality_base
    ;SETTING_3 \\n\\n[metadata]\\nsetting_version = 15\\nquality_type = low\\ntype =
    ;SETTING_3  quality_changes\\n\\n[values]\\n\\n"}

    How can I change the comment string in these lines or avoid to write those?

      • 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.
