Some questions about the new Cura

Recommended Posts

I use the old and new Cura side by side. Got a few questions on the new Cura, which is beautiful by the way.

1. How / where can i save the print profile? Cannot find it in the menu's.

2. For the old Cura i used the plugin Pause at height. Is there something like that for the new Cura?

I like the concentric bottom/top pattern. Much better result for horizontal surfaces.

Thanks.

Hi jeex,

 

How / where can i save the print profile?

Assuming that you don't want to copy the json files manually back and forth all the time... there's no way. I hope that's only a temporary state and it comes back soon.

It's a really huge drawback of the recent version that the print settings are not saved along with the gcode. That's the main reason why this version is pretty useless (yet?) - at least for my workflow...

Hopefully there will be a "project managing" plugin some day - but i have no clue if someone is working on it.... @nallath?

@nallath is indeed working on a postprocessing script plugin for the new Cura. He calls it a quick design but it's not too bad. There are just a few details missing which I hope he can add.

But the most important thing concerning the OP is that this plugin already has a PauseAtHeight script...!

It does save a print profile of sorts; it remembers the changes that you made. We are working on 'real' print profiles, i've already created a chunk of the functionality required for that.

The issues dim3nsioneer has with the post processing were already in the plugin, as it uses the same json structure for settings.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
