My Plugin: curaMod

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I made a little Plugin that manipulates Cura.

I just added one Functionality so far:

 

  • Add the expert-settings as tab

curaMod 0.1

https://www.youmagine.com/designs/curamod

If I have any good idea, I will add it - if YOU have one, tell me ;)

If you face any problem just reinstall CURA...

Adding the expert settings in the normal Cura code instead of using a plugin? ;-)

Hum? Sorry I don't understand^^ Do you mean they should edit Cura themself? Not everybody knows how to write programs and not everyone knows python... I think it could be useful when it comes to changes of higher complexity

All modifications will be done through plugins in the new version of cura (currently code named Pink Unicorn) so you're on the right track.

I meant: some code is worth to be part of the standard code and doesn't have to be a mod. Having the expert setting as a tab is IMHO.

ah okay, yes you are right but I think it was a conscious decision of the developers since it is less code this way... anyway ;)

Nice. I always go to expert to tweak something or just to see if I don"t have a leftover from a previous print.

So it makes sense to me to have it as tab.

1) copy the .py-file into your plugins folder (C:Program FilesCura_15.02.1plugins)

2) start Cura

3) select the plugin in the plugin-tab (doubleclick)

4) load ANY .stl-file (this is necessary to execute the plugin-code)

5) restart Cura

Don't spend to much time on tweaking the old Cura. The new one will be released soon (yeah, soon, won't give a more specific date).
