Hey Daid,

I'm liking Cura 12.12. I particularly love the bed leveling wizard. I stopped using a doubled-over card as a spacer. Your wizard sets it just right. Many thanks!

My future feature wishlist is:

EDIT: Removed 1 & 2 as they are in the current version.

3. Move the expert settings to another tab next to printer settings and advanced settings.

4. Allow us to adjust the Quick Print mode settings and save them.

5. Save all window positions between runs.

EDIT:

6. Also, I'd love to have the option to only run the fan during bridge printing.

7. Adjust the fan speed from Cura while printing.

8. Support for adjusting two fans on the print head. Perhaps this is a change to the main board, not Cura.

Thanks again for a great app!

    My future feature wishlist is:

    1. Adjust temperature on the fly while printing.

    2. Adjust speed on the fly while printing.

    Already basic functions of the ulticontroller

    And functions of the USB printing interface. So I'm kinda baffled by those two.

    I don't use the Ulticontroller, because well, I can't. It's pretty much useless to me.

     

    If this is doable with Cura via USB, then I'm missing it somehow. When I try to adjust the temperature in the print dialog while printing, it always reverts back to the temp shown in settings. I don't see the function for adjusting print speed while printing. If I change it in the settings tabs, it doesn't seem to affect the currently printing object. I just alters the next object I prepare.

    6. Also, I'd love to have the option to only run the fan during bridge printing.

    OK - I'm a dork. I had tried that over and over under 12.11 and it didn't change anything. I just tried adjusting the speed and temperature from the print dialog under 12.12 and it works!

    So, cancel 1 & 2 on my list. I was basing it on my 12.11 experience before I upgraded to 12.12 yesterday.

    did command line change again :(

    Sorry I feel like an idiot. I tried figuring out this one based on the last help but I can't get command line cura to slice.

    pypy.exe cura.py -i blabla.ini -s file.stl

    even if I try

    pypy.exe cura.py -h

    That used to gimme options with 12.11

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "app_main.py", line 51, in run_toplevel

    File "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\Software\Cura\Cura\cura.py", line 15, in

    from Cura.util import profile

    ImportError: No module named Cura

    You need to run Cura with "python -m Cura.cura" now, this is more pythonish, and solved a few coding issues.

    awesome thank you! Except I'm borderline retarted so I need it spelled out for me. I understand whats happening but with what I have set up I'm not sure how to do this. My command line looks like this:

    "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\Software\Cura\pypy\pypy.exe" "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\Software\Cura\Cura\cura.py" -i "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\PrintQueue\Cura.ini" -s "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\PrintQueue\Pyramid2x10.stl"

    Now with the new way I'm not sure where to put the "-m Cura.cura" and whether or not to use pypy.exe anymore as you mention Python -m Cura.cura

    Can you elaborate a little more on what I have there?

    I'm actually launching this command line from within python. Is there a better way for me to do this?

    Ah, you want to slice from the commandline.

    Best way to handle that would be:

     

    cd "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\Software\Cura\"pypy/pypy.exe -m Cura.cura -i "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\PrintQueue\Cura.ini" -s "Z:\Projects\Prototypes\PrintQueue\Pyramid2x10.stl"

     

    On the bad news side, this will change again for the next release :p (then it will be -m Cura.slice)

    I'm totally ok with it changing as long as it still works and you don't mind me asking every update! :D

      • 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
