Outlines of Cura

Stupid question: why does Cura draw the initial outlines around the objects? I do not see the use of it. It does not function as brim or anything like it.

    That's called the "Skirt" and can be disabled in the Expert settings. The purpose is to make sure the nozzle is completely full of plastic before the real print starts.

    Also this is your chance to do last minute leveling with the 3 screws. With the wooden bed UMO that was important. I still like it with the UM2 because my leveling might be great for many parts that print in the center but when I switch to a larger part I might notice it's too close/far in the back or on the front or whatever.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
