Newbie question about Cura 2.3.1 etc

Recommended Posts

Posted · Newbie question about Cura 2.3.1 etc

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.

Who's saying the display is all you need? That's just silly talk. The printer itself can't slice STLs so cura (or another slicer) is a vital part of the equation.

Sorry, i do not recognize what you are saying at all?

I think you have mixed up Cura as a slicer with USB printing using pronterface in the (old) Cura as a host? The display on the UM2+ is totally useless without a good Slicer.
