Cura 15.06 rotate, mirror, and scale function don't work


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 15.06 rotate, mirror, and scale function don't work

Hi All,

I am new to Cura and Ultimaker, so hopefully this problem is just due to my experience level (with software). I can load a file into Cure 15.06, but am unable to manipulate the model in space. That is whenever I try to, let's say rotate the object nothing happens. The circular axis indicators do not appear, same goes for mirror and scale does nothing.

I have installed and tried all versions of 15.06 with the same results, while using 15.04 seems to work ok. My machine is an i7, running win 7 pro with 8G ram. Also whenever I close 15.06 it throws an error and creates a log file.

I have three Ultimakers to used by college students and would really like to be able to print via USB.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Based in the info you give it's a known issue. Please try the 15.10 beta that will be released this week.


    It's been 2 months and still no release of 15.1! I would really like to have the capability to print directly from a computer via USB . Am I correct that 15.04 does not support USB communication?

    Is 15.1 in the works?

    15.1 is not in the works. 15.10 is though.

    15.04 supports USB printing, but just like 15.06 and 15.10 it's not really supported for UM2, as the supported way of printing is with the SD card. You can get it to work, but it is a lot more hassle.

      • 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
