    @ahoeben, Cura devs, Seems that I experienced a (at least at my machines) reproducable crash when opening already slices/stored gcode files with 3.5 Already checked the log-file but there seems no anormalies/errors listed. Any hint?

    Is a huge rework or just a minor mod required to make them work again? Just as a hint how long it might take to have them available again... ?

    Display current layer number during printing

    Quite simple... download the ShowLayer.py file and safe it into ...\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\cura\3.4\scripts start cura, open an STL, go to "Extensions" => "Post Processing" => "Modify G-Code" and then use the "Add a script" button to select the "Show Layer" postprocessor When slicing something, it automatically adds M117 lines with the corresponding layer number into your script. but I guess there is a much better description/tutorial how to use postprocessors available in this forum ?

    Display current layer number during printing

    There is a postprocessor available which writes Layer Numbers into the G-Code file and displays them via M117. Maybe usefull for your application / UM3 too... https://github.com/AmedeeBulle/ShowLayer/blob/master/scripts/ShowLayer.py

    Avoiding printed parts - dual color

    Having the same issue and I have also no solution up to now... Z-hop is a first shot in addition to combing, but my impression is that combing or "stay inside a part" is also not working propperly. ?

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    as far as I remember, with 3.4.0 it was not an issue (working a lot with SW and print currently), but unfortunately have uninstalled it recently. Anyone else to assist??

    Introducing Ultimaker Cura 3.4 | Beta

    Thanks for the hint, but for me "python" is a big snake willing to choke me out if I'm to close... So frankly, no idea, as I'm not a SW guy... Maybe in a future release, some kind of selection for cloud or local and a path selection could be implemented too...

    Output Settings to HTML Plugin

    Thanks for sharing!! Just minor a suggestion: could you paste the description you put on github also directly into the plugin.json? it might be easier to find the way if also in cura's toolbox this extended info is visible ?
