Cura settings for "MiniCalTest"


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura settings for "MiniCalTest"

Each Ultimaker 2 is shipped with a "MiniCalTest" block which was printed on that machine just prior to shipping. Does anyone know what Cura settings are used by the factory when printing this test piece? Not just the factory default settings on the machine, but the settings such as print speed, shell thickness, fill density, and other variables found on the Cura basic, advanced, and expert menus. I'd like to print the MiniCalTest block periodically using the exact same settings as the original piece as a way of monitoring performance of the Ultimaker as compared to when it was brand new. Thank you.

    gcode files store all the settings used to create the gcode file - at the end in a binary format. In cura you can select "file" "open profile from gcode" and that will load all the settings from that gcode file into cura and then you can go through them all and look at them or save them out "save profile...".

    The gcode that came on the card has all those settings so just save that g code or keep in on your card. You don't need to load it into cura to print it. Just select it from the print menu on the printer.

    The only thing is the machine settings like temps and acceleration speeds if adjusted will need to be put back to default. You could make a material profile the same as the default PLA and name it test or something if you want to make changes to the Pla profile.

    yes, the MiniCalTest block as well as the gcode-data are here. but:

    your hint to get the profile of the gcode by opening cura > file > "open profile from gcode" is not present in my cura version 2.1.2.

    modification is necessary when I will print with other nozzles than 0,4mm - from olsson block.

    or can I get the stl-data of the MiniCalTest?

      • 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
