Installation of different versions of Cura on the same machine?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I installed the Cura 3.4.1 AppImage on an x64 machine with Ubuntu 16.04, that I plan to use for 3D-printing on a Ultimaker 3 being purchased for an educational project I'm participating to. On the other hand, I just ordered a cheaper Geetech A30 for home use, since I'm a novice in 3D-printing. Now, I just learned that a customer of the latter printer couldn't get it recognized by Cura, after having set up a proper profile, and that the problem was solved by installing an older version of Cura, see discussion Geetech A30 and Cura for details. I thus wonder whether any conflicts could arise if I would install an older version of Cura, while keeping the current one, onto the same machine.

    • "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.
