  1. Thank you ahoeben! That is exactly what I was looking for. What is that long list of "plugins" I found in Contents/Resources/plugins/plugins? None of those seem to appear in Extensions > Post Processing under post processing scripts.
  2. I just downloaded and used Cura 4. Previously I have used a very old version of Cura mostly because it had a plugin called "Pause at height" which I have used regularly for certain projects. This plugin allowed me to insert metal hardware into the print while the printing was paused. Cura 4 did not seem to contain any plugins. So I searched for a solution on the Ultimaker web site. At https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/21966-cura-plugins I found this: How to install plugins On your computer, go to the Cura folder. Windows: Located in 'program files' folder. Mac: Located in the applications folder. Open the folder and find the following file path: Cura/Contents/Resources/cura/plugins This folder contains a few other plugins, like '3MF Reader' and 'Autosave'. Download a plugin and unzip it. Move the entire folder into the plugins folder. (Re)start Cura None of these instructions work on my computer. I am running Mac OS X High Sierra, Version 10.13.6 1. I have no Cura folder, only the Ultimaker Cura application in the Applications folder. 2. The only way I can follow the suggested file path (which does not exist on my computer) is by right clicking on the Ultimaker Cura application icon, and choose "Show Package Contents". I can then follow a path to Contents/Resources/plugins/plugins. 3.This folder contains a long list of seemingly available plugins. "Pause at height" is not one of them. 4. This instruction makes no sense. Download? I am in a folder with many plugins. There is nothing to download. They all seem to be in this folder. There is no ZIP file anywhere in the plugins folder. 5. This instruction also makes no sense. What entire folder am I supposed to move where? Please help.
  3. @nallath Still no infill in layer view in 15.06.03. Nor infill printing. Is there going to be an update of this bug soon. Without reliable infill I really am not able to use this software.
  4. https://ultimaker.com/en/support/view/16516-preparing-a-print-file Select the file on your computer and select “Open with” Cura Drag the file from your computer into Cura Neither of these two options work on my computer running OS X version 10.10.2
  5. I am also having multiple serious issues, and do not trust the new Cura for those reasons. If I cannot print with infill, as has been the case with multiple files now again in 15.06.03, this software is pretty much useless to me. Another functionality that seems to be missing from the new Cura are the plugins that used to come with the legacy version. One in particular is important to me right now, as I need it to do a print. It is the "Pause at height" plugin. I don't know if this plugin is part of the new Cura. If it is, I can't find it. The new Cura is also an enormous memory hog. It uses four times as much memory as the legacy version. So, would you please explain to me why you think the new Cura "is just a great software, so much better than the old one."
  6. I tried. It does not change anything. I did finally find the place where the "Infill line width" is. It is buried deep under Preferences > Machine > Quality > Shell Thickness > Wall Thickness > Wall Line Width! Wow really intuitive developers, ... NOT! Anyway, the default for this is .4 mm. So no, that does not change anything either. Besides I do not think that Infill Thickness controls the "infill line width". According to the flyout, Infill Thickness is "The thickness of the sparse infill. This is rounded to a multiple of the layerheight and used to print the sparse-infill in fewer, thicker layers to save printing time." No explanation to be found what "sparse infill" is. What is sparse infill?
  7. I tried to sign up on the GitHub site and got stumped immediately at the Username field. I am told "Username is already taken" when I want to use, both my previously used handle as well as my actual name which is a very unusual one. (My first name is a unusual Russian name, my last name a long Polish one). I seem to be having issues no matter what I try to do. Oh well, it seems part of what my life has been like these last four weeks. (Surgery a month ago with a month of pain, a root canal later today).
  8. I was considering that too. When I check all the infill settings in Preferences > Infill, I do not see a setting that might be related to the infill line width. I do see a setting "Infill Thickness", the default of which is 0 mm. This seems to be "The thickness of the sparse infill". I have no idea what "sparse infill" is.
  9. I don't "need" to use the latest version, and because in my case I cannot print infills, I indeed have not. However I would like to. And since nobody had responded to my post I thought that it also might be possible that I was doing something, or not something, that caused the latest Cura not to create infills. In other words, it might have been me who was causing this.
  10. Nobody has responded to a topic I posted 3 days ago. The topic is: Infill not showing and not printing in Cura 15.06.02. Since I consider this a rather important issue, which makes Cura 15.06.02 unusable for me, and since nobody has responded I now wonder: 1. If nobody else is having this issue. 2. How do I bring this to the attention of the developers at Ultimaker, since obviously they do not seem to participate here. Anybody out there with any bright ideas about this.
  11. If you upload to the forum albums you have complete control over your images too. You can delete them at will.
  12. I haven't figured that out yet either - it should be that if you click on the picture you get full size. I mean that would be how *I* would do it. For now it can be done "manually" by nesting the IMG code inside an URL code: Click for full size: So how exactly does one do that?
  13. Do you use Chrome in Windows or Mac OS X? Do you use Chrome with or without the extension Autosizer you suggest? It seems that this extension only scales images, but does not change the size of the images to what they are in my UM albums, but only scales them up. This makes the images very pixelated and the text in them impossible to read. I can do the same that this extension seems to do inside Chrome in OS X by hitting "Cmd +", or use "Ctrl + scroll wheel" to increase the size of anything on the screen. But none of this seems to give me the images in their original size as they appear in my UM albums.
  14. I have made a video to illustrate this issue further. The video also shows and additional issue that makes version 15.02.1 better than 15.06.02. Unfortunately uploading video is not allowed in this forum, only image files. Sometimes video explains issues so much better than images. Sadly, the latest Cura version shows multiple issues on my machine. A few seem bugs. UM support tells me that several are known bugs that the engineers are working on. Other issues are annoyances, that one has to fiddle with to work around. I would still call those bugs. I would love to be able to show some of those in videos, since it is too cumbersome to describe them accurately in words. I also find that solutions won't be forthcoming any time soon, since most of the people in this forum are users like myself and not engineers. This version of Cura does not seem much more than beta software to me that was not yet ready for release.
  15. Thank you Robert, that explains it. The reason my Cura 15.02.1 showed 928 layers was that I had the Initial layer thickness set to .15 mm. In Cura 15.06.02 I had not yet checked Initial Layer Thickness in Preferences > Machine > Quality, so the layer thickness was set to the default of .3 mm.
