my ideas for in a update for cura

Recommended Posts

A stack option for stacking objects so you can print in 2+ colors with single nozzle

how it works: 1 you make 2+ parts of your design in each a color

2 stack them

3 select print one at time option

4 set pauses in gcode at the different colors

5 chance the color on the right layer

anti crash mode

if you are printing cura with usb on a slow pc/mac cura will crash often.

Stacking objects is already possible in 2.1. We have improved the behavior for the upcoming release (Able to translate objects after they are merged)

Due to it's unstable nature we advise against using the USB printing. There are just too many factors that we have no control over that can break this.

What exactly do you mean by custom infill patterns? We (read; BagelOrb, the main slice / engine guy did this in his spare time) have added a few new infill patterns for the next release (including a 3D infill pattern and a variable infill pattern)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
