getConvexHull In case of one-at-a-time

Posted (edited) · getConvexHull In case of one-at-a-time

Hello Again the Cura Expert,


In my current code I'm using :

hull_polygon = node.callDecoration("getConvexHull")

hull_polygon = node.callDecoration("getConvexHull")


hull_polygon = node.callDecoration("getAdhesionArea")


Works great. But I have an issue with  getConvexHull  according to the source code in case of one-at-a-time, this includes adhesion and head+fans clearance.  Is there any method to keep the "minimal" ConvexHull  and not the getConvexHullHeadFull.


Best regards,



Edited by Cuq
