Cura-Plugin request

Recommended Posts


I 've noticed after prolonged testing that the surface of the print is a lot better if the fan is disabled. See this post: http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/5375-top-layers-not-touching-um2/page-19&do=findComment&comment=93213

Therefore, I am asking whether someone can write such a plugin. I know it works with tweak at z but only with input from layer- nr , fan speed , etc.

It would be simpler to say: Disable fan on the last layer. With a checkbox for activating or deactivating. (Like in the current version of retract while combing with first and last layer only)


I would write it myself but I have ( unfortunately) no knowledge about programming. :cry:


thank you


greets dirk

That would work only in that specific case. You probably want to do it for the top infill only and maybe not for the perimeter.


I think the m106 s0 or m107 must be added after ;TYPE:SKIN in the last Layer or?


I could introduce a behavior 'Apply to last layer only' in TweakAtZ...


This would also be helpful.

    • "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.
