Cura 15.10 Open Beta


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 15.10 Open Beta

The last weeks we've been working hard on improving the new Cura 15.06. It is the foundation on which we continue to build. Today we've released an open beta version (15.10), ready for you to explore. You can download it here.

If you are interested, we would like to invite you to use this beta version and give us feedback so together we can prepare this build to be included in the full version.

We’ve included five features that were already in Cura Legacy, so you can use these in the new Cura 15.10. There are also seven entirely new features, developed in our quest to continue improving Cura. Check the release notes to find out what has changed and let us know what you think.

In addition, we want to let you know that a few features still need some fine-tuning (mostly graphical). We included them in this beta anyway, so you can already test the functionality:


  • Post-Processing Plugin: Graphical layout is bare-bones, not all scripts are fully tested.
  • Support for Bed Leveling and other wizards: Graphical layout is bare-bones, not all error cases are handled correctly (but it shouldn't cause crashes).
  • Visualization of the Per-Object Settings: Graphical layout has some mistakes in it.


Throughout the testing period we will continue to develop and process the feedback. All in all you can expect improvements on these features in the upcoming weeks. We will then also have a 64-bit Windows Build available for you.

To collect all the feedback we ask you to post everything in this forum topic. We will keep a close eye on it and make sure that your feedback will reach our developers.

Thank you very much for contributing and enjoy this version of Cura!

This post is for communication purposes. If you want to contribute and leave your comments please go to this (similar) thread.

    • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
      In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

    • 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 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.
