Hello,

I'm on ubuntu 18.04. Have got Cura 3.3.1-PPA and the appimage of 3.4.1.

Tried to install the FreeCAD-Plugin, but couldn't get it. The appimage does not provide any plugin menu item, the PPA version has got a "Plugins" menu, item, but this only offers "browse plugins", where I cannot find the FC plugin.

I copied the plugin file (CuraFreeCADPlugin-0.1.1.curaplugin) to ~/.local/share/cura/plugins and made it executable, but still no FC-files are visible.

 

@thopiekar - could you give me a hint?

 

Cheers,

Wolf

    Does the AppImage have a Toolbox menu? In 3.4, the plugin browser was renamed to Toolbox.

     

    The curaplugin file should be compatible with Cura 3.3 (the PPA), but you are using it in the wrong way. Remove it from the local/share/cura/plugins folder, and instead drag and drop it in the Cuar window. It will then be extracted to the correct folder. Note that this will not work with Cura 3.4, because that requires a .curapackage file.

     

    Finally, realise that freeCAD needs to be installed as well as the plugin.

    Thank you for your time.

    1. FC is installed (0.18)

    2. At cura 3.4 I've got a "toolbox" menu. In the window it opens, I find a "menu" entry,but this is grayed out and will not open.

    3. At cura 3.3.1, I tried the plugin installation as mentioned above. Cura says "installed properly" - I can now choose FC files  but they are not installed. See error log (from terminal) attached.

     

    HTH, Cheers,

    Wolf

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
