Newbie question about Cura 2.3.1 etc

Recommended Posts

I'm puzzled why Ultimaker continue maintaining and improving their Cura software, when a large number of members assert that the UM2+ LCD display is all one needs. It may simply be that's what they prefer but why so down on Cura as a source of potential problems. I run a fast PC with USB3 and have had much help from Pronterface, Cura, MatterControl etc when I set up a Prusa i3 recently. I'm not yet into printing aircraft wings so all my models on the UM2+ have been on the small side. Power cuts are relatively infrequent.

Thanks for your comments.
