13.05 quickprint to full settings

Recommended Posts

As far as I can tell, when one makes selections in 'quickprint' and then change to 'full settings' the 'quickprint' settings are ignored.

As a newbie I'd find it helpful if the 'full settings' reflected the 'quickprint' choices. Would help learning.

Failing that is there somewhere a comparison list for PLA?

I mean a list of the 'full settings' that 'quickprint' High quality, Normal quality and Fast low quality choices implement?

Now I'm embarrassed 'cos I can't remember. I guess that somehow it was involved in the Steam Engine beta.. I got into a muddle with 13.04 and Steam Engine Beta 2 and uninstalled both. As far as I can remember I found 13.05 in my Cura download folder (downloaded on 23 May) so I installed it. Certainly at the top of the Cura window is Cura - 13.05.

But I can't find it on-line now....

Best I can do, I'm afraid.

13.05 is the semi-closed beta for the new Steam Engine slicer. Details here:

Cura saves its full slice settings embedded in every file it slices. So the easy way to see what the settings are is to slice a file with quickprint, and then change to full settings mode, and 'Load Settings from GCode' from the File menu.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
