Cura Time warp?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I've been non active for a couple of months, Exams/Holidays/family etc. And had to completely restore my laptop after a failed Windows 10 upgrade.

So, I download the latest Cura 15.04.2 open it up and the look is the same as right back at the start of the year.

I'm sure the last version I was using had a different look and all the options on the right hand side, and with different options for the infill and faces, including line, grid, concentric etc.

Did I previously download a beta version or have I missed something.

Cheers guys for any feed back

Thanks xisle, so I take it I was using a beta version, which seems strange as I usually just check for an upgrade through Cura.

But if it was a beta version it would explained the 20%fill problem which would give 2% fill yet 21% and 22% were fine:-)

The Cura version numbers correspond to their release date:

Version 15.04 is from April 2015 and is commonly called "legacy" Cura

Version 15.10 is from October 2015 and is the current "all new" Cura Beta version

Note that 15.10 is not available through their official site yet (closed Beta), but you can download and use it from the link xisle posted above.

There was a dispute about the new Cura not being labelled as a beta version initially. You probably got that new Cura then. Now it's labelled as beta.

Actually, version 15.04.2 is from July 15, but they have a problem with their version numbers because they first released the "all new" Cura as verison 15.06 in June. Now they need a way to keep legacy and new apart...

This one explains it a bit.

Cheers SandervG,

It's a shame to select just one as the best answer as all tend to be helpful, but Labern just pipped it for me.

Thanks to all for your replies, Izzy
