Cura software interface customise

Recommended Posts

Hello,

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?

Thanks

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
