Cura software interface customise


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura software interface customise


I am trying to find a way to customise the cura GUI interface, so upon boot up it is only set to a certain profile.

Is there a way to repackage cura to do this?

I am trying to make this customised version of cura so users cannot change from the default print settings (speed, infill, resolution etc).

I understand the interface is written in Python, can anyone point me in the right direction to make these modifications?

    Check the code on github. If you're somewhat proficient with Python (or any coding language for that matter), it should be pretty self explanatory. If you're not proficient with coding, no amount of pointers from our end will help you ;)

    Thanks for your reply

    I have actually found what im looking for in the GUI Python files, it doesn't look too difficult.

    However i can't find where the python files that defines the basic and advanced tabs.

    I can see the section within the file mainWindow.py

    (left, right, self.printPanel) = self.CreateDynamicConfigTab(self.nb, _('Basic'))

    self._addSettingsToPanels('basic', left, right)

    self.SizeLabelWidths(left, right)


    (left, right, self.advancedPanel) = self.CreateDynamicConfigTab(self.nb, _('Advanced'))

    self._addSettingsToPanels('advanced', left, right)

    self.SizeLabelWidths(left, right)


    Looking at the function "addSettingsToPanels" doesn't lead to anywhere either.
