New Cura

Recommended Posts

So I thought I saw in another topic that there's going to be a new release of Cura soonish? Any differences that we can expect? A couple of things I now that I would like to see would be a concentric fill, where it would follow the walls inward, and a scroll window for the slicing results so that if you load five or so models, the model/gcode view pane doesn't continue to decrease each time it slices another model. Slight tweaks I would imagine. Just some thoughts..

Suggesting big features a few days before the new release makes it hard to fulfill wishes ;-)

There are a lot of cosmetic differences, and a few new features. We'll outline the details with the release.

The concentric fill would be a skeinforge change. I'm not sure Daid is doing that level of alterations. Correct Daid? Slic3r does that, you might look into a different slicer.

Quick question:

Will it be possible to have individual profiles for each object you print in the project planner, when doing them in "one after the other" mode?

I mean, you would open Project Planner, add Object 1, set Profile for it ("fine, 0.1mm layer"), add Object 2, set Profile for it ("medium, 0.2mm layer") and use "print Object 1 first, then Object 2".

Usually I print "all at once with one setting", but ppl. ask me sometimes for samples of an object in different resolutions (or I want to test out if an object is nicer with "skin" or finer layer etc.) - and that would need different profiles for different objects.

EDIT: Ahh, yes cou can - just saw it in your Video. Great!!! :-)

I think I show quite a bit in my latest presentation, and really quick. You might want to view it twice or 3 times :p

I noticed that Cura has quite a few features that people want but cannot find. So clearer manual, better buttons are a priority.

Gotcha, I hadn't realized SF didn't have that capability. Boy, not a fan of Slic3r... at least not after having had Cura. I do like some of the features it contains at first glance, but Daid, you were absolutely right in creating a more user friendly GUI... Also, not a fan of the lack of model view/gcode preview. Any joker ought to know what the rough out line of the part would look like...

Alexander made a mistake in the version number. We already shot him for this. (Paintball was fun)

It is the 12.10 release, the titel is just wrong.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
