Where is pronterface in Cura 3.1?????

Recommended Posts

Posted · Where is pronterface in Cura 3.1?????

I used to use Cura 2 for my printing, but I recently had to get a new laptop so I had to install the newest cura (3.1). After reading around, I found that there is no more pronterface in Cura 3.1????? I have a printrbot and need used to use the pronterface to adjust my gcode settings for the Z-offset height (M212). But now without the pronterface, I am not sure how I can adjust the Z-offset, so my prints have not been good. 

 

Please can you tell me if there is another way to adjust the Z-offset, I used to use the M212 command in the pronterface, and M500 to save the settings, but now without pronterface, I am wondering if there is still a way to do that. Also, are you guys going to be adding another interface so that I can interact with the printer over USB cable, and type in commands???

Cura 2 did not have pronterface either. You probably used a much older version, like Cura 15.04 (where 15 is the year the version was released).

 

The (USB) printer control area has been growing steadily in functionality over the past few releases. Cura 3.3 will likely have hotend preheating, and probably some form of custom commands and/or a gcode console.
