xyz-shift addon and cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · xyz-shift addon and cura

Hello!

I'm a student working for a research group doing microfluidics. We've been using the Ultimaker 2 to make small prints on different coverglasses that are used in microscopes. These range from 100microns to 1.2mm and I often have to print on different heights.

I found this addon (http://wiki.ultimaker.com/CuraPlugin:_XYZshift) and it would solve all my problems, but it's old and does not work quite as intended. When I've tried printing using it, it does not completley change the g-code (It does not change G0 commands). The perimiters are not included in the z-shift for example. (This might have bent a rod in the printer =/ )

I know that you can change the g-code manually so that you get a new z-home but it would be nice with a plugin, and I havent found one. Even better would be if Cura could handle this.

So what I want to do is offset z to print on different objects. Is there any way this could be made possible with a addon or similar?

Sorry if this is in the wrong sub.

It's pretty easy to fix that addon, pretty sure you would manage if you open that addon in notepad or something like that.
