  1. Better yet, close Cura before starting to manipulate the %APPDATA%\cura\4.8 folder.
  2. What is the purpose of this post here? If you don't like the plugin, don't use it. @5axes has no obligations to you. Most spreadsheets I used present me with a dialog that lets me select the separator when I import a CSV file. And by "most", I mean all that I can remember using. The link to the rant you posted has no relation to this issue or this forum, so to me it only comes across as link-spam.
  3. The good news is that there is no need to sign (or to have an account at all) in to access the marketplace.
  4. Note quite though. They make all sorts of inexplicable changes to their Marlin-based firmware, requiring specific fixes: https://plugins.octoprint.org/plugins/ender3v2tempfix/ The thing is, the current functionality works as intended for Ultimaker Original printers.
  5. Yes, I know there are release candidates (and I have even contributed a tiny fix last year so I know there is some activity), but the latest release from the pronterface website is still from 2014. So I can't help but wonder how many people are actively using Printrun/pronterface with things like Creality printers that have the type of - let's say - "creative" changes to the protocol that make USB printing "horrible". My latest attempt* to reboot USB printing as a contributed plugin was to use the Printrun core. One of the things that kept me from finishing was seeing how much it d
  6. Serious question: are any of them open source and still maintained and stable? I think the best way forward is to drop what Cura is trying to do and interface with an exiting known-good implementation as an external process. I have made a couple of "false starts" in that direction. It would have the benefit that if Cura stops or has a hickup, that would not necessarily interrupt the print. PrusaSlicer (and SuperSlicer) seem to have no support for USB printing (https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/issues/2046). PrintRun/PronterFace don't seem to have had a release since 2014. Does
  7. That's a bit tricky and won't make it for the first official version. For now I have made them small, even if you zoom in (similar to how toolhandles of other tools stay the same size when you zoom in or out)
  8. A manual way of importing a .curaprofile is to unzip the file and placing the resulting 2 or more files in %APPDATA%\cura\4.8\user
  9. To be honest I have no idea what CuraCLI is for and how to use it.
  10. I'm working on a new plugin that adds a simple measuring aid to Cura: In its current incarnation, the tool lets you pick (and drag) two points and shows the distance between these points. A test-version can be downloaded here: MeasureTool Download the file and drop it onto the buildplate in Cura as if you were opening a 3d model. Then restart Cura as instructed.
  11. You would get a seam where the hotend jumps from one wall to the other (and back).
  12. There should be no seam, no layer transition. A spiral changes Z continuously, instead of once per layer.
  13. This is listed among the "known issues" here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/releases/tag/Arachne_engine_beta
