Cura development releases for Linux now available

Recommended Posts

Hi, if you are using Linux and feeling like trying the cutting edge of Cura development then head over to https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0

where you will find copies of my current Cura installation. They are based on the Cura master branches + my own additions and tweaks and will contain all known bug fixes that have been merged to master. These are not AppImages but an archive of an installation built on a Ubuntu 16.04.4 system, just unpack and then execute cura/bin/cura.sh. Supplied with absolutely no warranty, YMMV.

Here's the contents of the  README.md that goes with the releases:


## Cura development releases (Linux only)

These are built on a Ubuntu 16.04.4 system from the current Cura master branches + my own additions/tweaks.

Use tar xjf cura-mb-master-DDMMYYYY.tar.bz2 to unpack into a directory called cura.

Once unpacked, run `cura/bin/cura.sh` to start the application.

**All are supplied with no warranty, YMMV.**

## What's different from the regular master branch?

### Stuff that could be merged into the standard release in the future

1. Mininum Wall Flow + Prefer Retract settings let you specify the minimum flow rate for a wall,
if a wall has a smaller flow rate (i.e. is thinner), it is replaced with a travel move and, optionally, may use retraction.

2. Fan Speed Override + Supported Skin Fan Speed settings let you specify a fan speed to be used for the skin areas that are above support.

3. Small Hole Max Size + Small Feature Max Length + Small Feature Speed + First Layer Speed settings let you print small feature outlines slower.

4. Misc tweaks+bugfixes not yet merged into the CuraEngine master branch.

### Stuff that won't be merged into the standard release because it has been rejected by the Cura devs

1. Initial Layer Wall Speed/Acceleration/Jerk lets you specify those values for the walls on the initial layer.

2. Initial Fan Speed At Height/Layer lets you specify the layer at which the initial fan speed comes into effect. Below that layer, the fans are off.

    • 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.
