In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
Sorry for the gravedigging, but I just wanted to share that nail polish remover improves adhesion too. Yesterday I printed a 80x160x2 mm rectangular piece and I didn't have any IPA. So, being too impatient to go out and buy it, I used my gf's nail polish remover and the piece stuck to the tape, and the tape to the bed, so tightly I had immense trouble getting it off! I was simply amazed by how strongly it was attached.
I only succeeded in getting it off by removing the whole bed from the printer and then persistently driving a utility knife between the bed and the tape, and after that I still had to remove the tape from the plastic by using lots more nail polish remover.
