Replace 3D GUI shell for C# GUI shell

I want to displace a GUI front end called CURA which is written in Python with my own front end which I want written in C#, so then I can add my features to the program easily, Cura uses pypy but essentially calls another program called Skienforge( which is written in Python) which slices the STL file into Gcodes for 3D printing.

I think realistically there is too much code to convert with Skeinforge, but to create a C# wrapper to displace the CURA front end would be relatively straight forward. I don't need the serial comms part of Cura moving across I can do that, what I do need it the Gcode fileout which can be generated to be the same between the original Cura program and the C# program. The Cura program uses the following dependencies: PyOpenGL, PyOpenGL,_accelerate, pyserial, numpy, power

I just want the shell doing first, but this is a long term project, obviously as they bring out bug fixes and upgrades I will need that porting across, to remain within the legalities of the open source I must release the code into the open source community, but for me that’s not a big issue, if you think it's feasable at some stage I would like the underlying code converting but I think its too big a task ( the main reason being I want to speed up the slicing)

I should add I don't want all the Cura displaced , if parts are retained it must be hidden behind the C" shell, for example the functionality of a button can remain , but instead of being activated through Cura, it should be activated threough the C# GUI shell
