Cura 13.06.4 thoughts

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Firstly let me say - this is a wonderful enhancement to the Ultimaker - thank you.

I had a couple of thoughts.

Firstly it would be useful to have a display layout that showed ALL the settings employed for a print - this is really useful in developing profiles and print settings.

It also really needs to show the printed objects scale, translation, rotation and mirror settings so that if you are doing a multipart print, you have a reference of what these were so that all the parts will match. Presently Cura hides these which can be frustrating.

This image link shows what I mean.

Also it would be really helpful to have an autoname increment so that we can avoid overwriting SD card files - maybe nNAME678.xxx where n is the number of the file increment and NAME678 is the original STL/OBJ file originally loaded. xxx being whatever the suffix is for GCode files.

Cheers,

Saul

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
