When searching on some dutch words, i kept getting the same amount of results: 11880 in the forum. Even when searching on a Britney Spears songtitle i got those results.

Shouldn't it say: 0 results if there are none? See image

    I would not say Google search is working better but rather it is working. The forum search is not. Neither it didn't in the old forum. I guess it never will. Unless Ultimaker finally can decide to use Google search.

    But somehow they seem to have decision processes which block any reasonable and any only half-way prompt decision. This might have been caused by the mistakes they made in recent past by being too quick to introduce and announce new things (forum, Cura, dual extrusion).

    It is a continuous work in progress. We are doing tweaks to the search-tool to make it better but at the same time we are well aware there is still plenty of room for improvement.

    We are also looking into implementing google search in the website, but that is currently still under investigation.

    I wish the search results allowed you to sort by newest to oldest.

    It works...a bit.  But is a struggle, I agree

     

    agreed! And much more filters offered after the search results, now I get spanish threads from 2012 first etc etc. Never underestimate the value of a good search tool imo, especially on a forum!

    I try to be grateful I get results :)

    And I agree about the languages. But at least none are in Klingon, Romulan, Vulcan.... ;)

      • 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
