Cura 15.06.3

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We made some improvements to the New Cura, which can be downloaded here.

Some of the new features:

 

  • New firmware: 15.04.2
  • Abort print if any move would result in printing outside the build volume.
  • Slightly reduce motor current to reduce the chance of overheating.
  • Pause now accounts for different models that have already been printed and will not cause a double retraction on abort.

 

If you have an Ultimaker Original, or if you just prefer to use the Old Cura, you can download the latest firmware (15.04.2) as well, right here.

Enjoy! :)

Should we not be using New Cura with the Ultimaker Original? How so?

Well yes you could, but a few wizards that are still being used like calibration and first run wizard are not in the New Cura. Dual Extrusion isn't in the New Cura yet either.

For that reason we recommend the Old Cura, but if you don't have or use those things, you would be fine :) hope that answers your question.

Sorry, but the debian package is still broken:

 

$ CuraEngine CuraEngine: error while loading shared libraries: libprotobuf.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

This package is a mess. It actually includes pieces of google's protobuf and python3-protobuf which are going to conflict with their OS counterparts. Nevertheless libprotobuf.so.10 is NOT included.

And what about the x86 version. Gone forever?

We're statically building lib protobuff because of LTS reasons, but something went wrong in our build script. It's going to be fixed soon. Thanks for reporting it.

Yes. We're not going to support that anymore. You're free to spent time on it, but there just aren't enough people using it for us to spend the amount of time needed to make it work.

Was the build plate temperature bug in the UMO fixed?  Or do we still need to do the manual fix?

Thanks!

 

Uhm. Could you remind me what the bug was again?

The bug where it would try to heat the bed if it wasn't manually set to zero? Yes.

 

Yes, that's the one!

The download page refers Ultimaker Original owners to a different version for firmware. I'm struggling to find documentation (just executables/setup) on what is in each version (change history/notes)? I'd like to know if I am current with firmware updates to my Ultimaker Original.

15.04.2 is current FW for UMO. I installed it from 15.06.03 recently.

Just installed the new version on my MAC and it lost all my settings?

 

The settings from 15.04 to 15.06 were drastically changed and aren't brought over. If updating from 15.06.xx to 15.06.03, settings should not be lost.

My previous version was 15.06.02 iirc...

The settings thing... It wasn't just the one time sigh.

Cura 15.06.03 loses its settings after every shutdown... it asks me to add a printer every time it starts. MacOS 10.10.4

I'm on 10.9.5 and haven't had that issue.

[EDIT] Actually, that's not true. I had an issue with printer settings not being retained, but not printers. That was until 15.06.02 or maybe even 15.06.03.

No issues with config files on my iMac 5K. My MacBook Pro however keeps insisting on me re-adding the printer on every startup. Already tried removing ~/.cura so it would be recreated but no luck

Ow and on my iMAC, the 3rd time this happens (nothing is saved in that case):

I *think* it was because there was still a second object with a different name loaded (but not visible - far outside of the build volume). I've removed it and then saved again and then it assigned the name of the object on the build plate.

The mouse response for moving objects is extremely weird on my iMac5K. If i click on the object to move it it just jumps a couple cm away. I then have to drag with my mouse far outside of the object to get it back on the plate.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
