In this version I seem to be unable to change my Machine settings. I cannot enable the settings for Spiralise or Wire Printing, nor can I enable the Bed Temperature setting for my upgraded UMO. In 15.06.01 I could at least enable these settings. Enabling the settings in 02 simply doesn't add the option to the interface. Many setting toggles are also disabled now.

Update: After I enabled said options in the machine settings in .01, the settings carried over to .02. Most of the settings that were disabled are now enabled. But changing the machine settings in .02 still has no effect.

/Update

When installed in the Program Files (x86) folder, Cura can not write to Cura.log (unless Cura is started in elevated mode). So when a Python error occurs, it is impossible to figure out what went wrong. Is there any way this file could be created at some other location? (Somewhere in AppData, or in the .cura folder in the profile folder which legacy Cura used)

    Tried it, installed ok, loaded an STL, cura crashed withing seconds.... and it's not creating the cura.log file... Just to be sure checked the stl in old cura, no problem.

    Yeah, unfortunately Cura tries to write the cura.log crash report file to the folder it is run from, and normal programs are not allowed to write to Program Files directories. If you copy/move the whole Cura_15.06.02 folder to a location outside Program Files, it will at least be able to write cura.log and you can see/tell what actually crashed (the next time it crashes).

    What happened to the ability to alter the start and stop gcode? It is kind of necessary if you are using a custom extruder and need to change the initial extrude or retract settings. Also, on some prints I prefer the printer to not cool everything down right away and with my current print head, I find it necessary to add an extra pause for the head to fully come up to temperature.

    Edit: I found what appears to be the start and stop g-code in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.06.01\resources\settings" in the *.json files; however, when I created a printer with a custom name, it didn't create a new file in this folder, so it seems like this might not be the file to edit. Is there another folder somewhere with the stored settings?

    Bug? Is the fan speed supposed to go up and down every few layers?

    Edit Nevermind: I had just inverted the fan min/max speed settings. Woops.

    If you add another json file (text editior), with a new name, and a new printer name in the file, you'll be able to choose that printer (thus that json file) when adding a new printer in cura

    Same.

    Time to maximum fan speed would be nice. I feel like the ramp rate for fan speed on a lot of my prints are due to how quickly the hot end can adjust to the increased airflow/cooling. This seems more layer than time dependent.

    Also, being able to set the minimum percentage for the fan to start spinning would be helpful.

    Indeed, when setting based on layers (as I do in S3D) you can get a temp error when the fans get on to fast, I once had this with a small and fast spiralize print..

     

    Also, being able to set the minimum percentage for the fan to start spinning would be helpful.

     

    Simplify3D has the option to give a short '100% pulse' to get the fans going, think this works well

    That could help, but some fans simply don't run below a certain threshold.

    Hi, I've just purchased an ultimaker 2. Downloaded Cura for osx but i keep getting Cura Error whenever i try and open the software. I'm running OSX 10.7.5 and downloaded the latest Cura software this morning. Any clues?

    Made a hardware work around for the low initial voltage problem for my crossflow fan.

    Now I am wishing that I could set a custom fan ramp curve, as the crossflow fan airflow is a lot more focused during the first few millimeters (when the platform is there to contain the airflow.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
