Posted · Feedback During Cura FirstRun Wizard / Checkup

Daid,

When I run FirstRun Wizard > Ultimaker Checkup and click the limit switches the only feedback is the prompt to click the next limit switch thus when you click the bottom Z limit switch there is no feedback at all.

Suggestion: An "Limit Switch OK" message after each switch is successfully detected so that the human explicity understands wether or not each of the switches are working.

Thanks, Bill

    I'm reworking the checkup wizard. I'm almost done with it, and it will be a LOT easier to follow, with clear indications what is happening, better logging, and pictures to show which endstops to press.

    can i ask you to double check the text in the endstop calibriation. it told me to check the z top endstop, i pushed it, and nothing happened, then i pushed the lower one, and that worked.

    The text in Cura 12.08 is fine. But it's sometimes a bit slow to react, up to seconds. So that could have been your problem.

    That does look alot better, I'd also suggest some clarity on what should be done for the steps per E test.

    I made that test very clear by removing it all-together. It's not really needed to get good results, it's a 1% final tweaking thing that doesn't belong there at all.

      • 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
