Hi!

I have just installed the latest version of cura (I had to reinstall windows... long story!) and in going through set up... there no longer seems to be an option for a custom printer (I have a reprap prusa i3)?? I have been using Cura for a while and have loved using cura! Is there any reason why the custom option has been removed?

    It's temporary. This is a total rewrite of Cura and isn't quite done - lots of other (less used) features. Several custom printers have already been created and checked into the source tree but there hasn't been a build yet with those printers in it (although you can download them). The way to customize to a given is much better now and has more features. So you might want to stick with the older version of Cura for a few more months and keep checking back. Or you could figure out how the customization works - it's talked about here on the forums.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
