Edit Cura profile or support material with OctoPi

Posted · Edit Cura profile or support material with OctoPi

Hello,

a few weeks ago I bought a Raspberry Pi to control my Ultimaker 2+ by wlan. Now I want to slice with OctoPi, but how do I enable support material?

I wanted to edit the "pla_0.4mm_normal.ini" file with Notepad++, but I don't know in which value I have to change support? Normally there is "None", do I have to write Yes? True? On?

Is there a list with all values that exists?

And why I can't save the profile in Cura (15.04.06) (file > save profile)?) It's disabled.

Thanks for your help!

Simon

    I think @skdesign wants to do the slicing on his OctoPrint instance. OctoPrint has a plugin which uses the 15.04 version of CuraEngine, which uses the 15.04 profile ini files.

    Having said that, as the author of the octoprint plugin I agree with @nallath that you have much more control over the placement and print settings if you use Cura 2.3 (or 2.4 beta) with the OctoPrintPlugin.

    I use Cura 15.04 because in the interface of Cura 2.2 I can't find all settings, but maybe in 2.3.

     

    2.3 has improved setting search, so settings should be easier to find.

    What things were you unable to find?

    I don't know, that's a few months ago, some expert settings.

    But cura 2.3 is perfect. Especially after i configured the interface.

    another question

    do you know how you can set up the printing speed that the first 3 layers are printed slower e.g. 70%?

      • 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
