Downloaded the 2.1 beta, but was bummed to not be able to select printrbot as a printer. Are there genetic settings that can be used? Is there any word if printrbot is going to try to be an option. I read one post where a company just had to submit some .json info to be included in the 2.2 beta...

Thanks.

Mike

    I tried contacting printrbot. They have expressed that they had no interest in providing such a file.

    So sorry, you're on your own. If you make a machine definition file make a pull request. In that case it will be in the next release.

    I you want to help, you could have a look at this thread on github:

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/715

    Note that the machine definition file currently proposed there has a "special" start gcode according to the author:

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/715#issuecomment-214772800

    If you could help with a better general purpose start gcode for the printrbot simple metal, we can work on getting it included in a future release of Cura 2.x

    Thanks for the input. I am not sure my skill set includes creating a machine definition file, but if it does I will submit it. I have heard good things about 2.1, so hopefully printrbot gets onboard. =) Thanks again.

      • 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
