Preview G-code file in Cura.

Hi Folks,

 

As I've been using S3D for a "long" time in order to study sliced models before printing, I found that Cura now have a good G-code viewer.

However, the last version (Cura 3.1) do not have as good viewer as found in the beta version 2.5, as it sometimes add a small drop. In order to show the difference, I've added two picture of the same sliced model (Arthur's flow/speed test) first from S3D and Cura 2.5 Beta (none of them shows the Z stitch). 

I've also added a picture viewed with Cura 3.1 of the same sliced object.

 

Here's the link to "Arthur's speed test"; https://www.youmagine.com/designs/test-print-for-ultimaker--2#activity

S3D and Cura 2.5 Beta  Those two are showing all details the same as far as I can see..

And Cura 3.1 (Note the extra drop just under 10 ... )

 

The little droplet just above the S (the upper) is an error in the existing Gcode file and shall be visible on the print.

 

Thanks

 

Torgeir.

    I will have to keep an eye out for this. I have not noticed anything like that in my slices. And, I get pretty close much of the time, but maybe now that I see it here, I will notice it.

      • 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
