Cura software interface customise

Recommended Posts


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 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.
