Will Cura ever/Does Cura support Lulzbot Printers?

Recommended Posts

I have a few UM3s and a UM3E, but I was looking at getting a Lulzbot Taz 6 for its larger print volume.

I would like to keep using Cura as my main slicing program seeing as it is so great and easy to use;

although I checked the "Add Printer" list of supported printers and noticed Lulzbot is not there, not even there older machines.

 

Are there any plans to add support for them?

Ultimaker will only “passively” support 3rd party printer profiles. If someone contributes them, they will be included.

 

Lulzbot are actively working on their version of Cura, but seem to have stopped actively sharing back their changes, so the profiles they have made are not (yet?) put back in Ultimaker Cura.

    • "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.
