My 12yo son received a Monoprice Mini printer and I'm trying to help him figure it out. Unfortunately I'm not very tech savy. We can't get anything to print other than the file that came pre-loaded. Cura 15 was provided on the SD card. I see 15 is no longer being developed and 3.2 is the more current software. Does it make a difference which version is used?

I strongly recommend you stick with cura 15.  At least for the first 100 prints.

 

Cura 15 works great and I still use it on some of my printers.  Cura 3.X has a huge learning curve and will waste time trying to get things working - it will be a distraction.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
