Cr10 Print Monitor functionality

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this was already covered but didn't find anything via search. Are there any options I'm missing for a more elaborate S3D style machine control panel using Cura ? I'm running a CR10 S5 using Cura 3.2.1 and the would love to get the same kind of feedback while printing that the S3D machine control panel provides. 


Also - noob question - can changes be made directly to the profile settings to modify print settings mid print ?

No problem ! This 1 minute video covers it all. The Machine Control Panel in S3D displays communication with the printer line by line, XYZ positioning, lets you adjust print speed, extrusion speed, fan speed and includes custom commands (enable motors is really helpful). 


Currently I'm using USB - OctoPrint will be next.

The functionality of the monitor has been growing steadily; it was not until recently (3.0 ?) that jogging was added, and 3.3 adds extruder preheating and sending of raw gcode commands.


This functionality is not something Ultimaker actively works on, because neither USB nor OctoPrint is a recommended mechanism for their printers, so most additions come from 3rd party contributors.

    • "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.
