Calling all forum newbies and similar


Recommended Posts

Posted · Calling all forum newbies and similar

Hi all this is just a call to you all to help us help you. After every Xmas there is the rush of new 3D printers to our forum, which is great. You have no or little experience or maybe you have but none with Cura. And for many the forum is the first point of call for help, which is expected and great that you think we can help you. And there have been a lot of you during the last couple of months.


To help us help you!

1. Please tell us your Cura settings; key ones are filament (type/manufacturer), bed temp.,1st layer filament depth and print speed, filament depth, extruder temp., print speed(if you are using different speeds for different parts of the print please tell us), infill % and pattern type, cooling i.e. fan settings; retraction settings


2. A pic, or several, can be really helpful in letting us see what is going on.


3. The old forum use to display the country you lived in but is seems the new one does not. If you could note that in your post it would give us some idea as to your native language and whether you may struggle with English ( of course some big assumptions there); knowing that just prompts us to try and be intelligent with the words we use when replying. Of course it is not mandatory but just misunderstanding one word can make all the difference.

    • 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.
