Note that due to some changes in the background, all plugins needed to be updated. Not all plugins are available yet. Once they are available, you can update them through the Toolbox.

A more complete list of features is in the great blog post, written up by my friend Matt: https://ultimaker.com/en/blog/52715-whats-new-in-ultimaker-cura-35-beta   An even more complete list

Ultimaker Cura 3.5 | Beta is about to be released and we can't wait for you to try it out and let us know what you think. We've worked hard to pack it with new features, stability improvements and fix

    After installing the Printer Settings plugin, Cura 3.5 Beta does not start anymore.

     

    The plugin triggers a bug in Cura that causes it to crash because of a custom printer definition file that needs updating: ultimaker2_duet3d_dual_0.4. Where did you install that file? In the configuration folder, or in your Cura application folder (in program files)?

    It prints nicely so great job there, but what happened to the slicing speed ???

    It feels extremely slow so i timed a model with same settings on 3.4.1 and 3.5, the first sliced in 18 seconds, it took version 3.5 1.41minutes  :-O

     

    Edit, all seems to work normal now with similar speed as 3.4.1, even after starting and closing the beta a couple of times didn't seem to change the slicing time, now its working normally and cant figure out why, no other programs running so hope this was a temporary bug.

    Well the problem has returned !

    3.5 slices ultra slow, and 3.4.1 still works very fast.

     

    Tried another model to slice:

    3.4.1 5 seconds slicing

    3.5 beta 15 seconds to slice 

     

    Any ideas what's causing this ?

    Please save the project from 3.5 and attach the .3mf file here (if you are able/willing to share that).

    This has been fixed for the final 3.5

    The files are stored in the configuration folder (roaming\cura\3.5\variants\).

     

    Then they should be upgraded automatically by Cura. Strange that that does not work.

    Hi smartavionics,

     

    I have attached both the file made in 3.4.1 and 3.5.

    In addition, saving the sliced file also takes much longer

     

    Hope it helps!

    Hi @phantom, thanks for the files. I just looked at the 3.5 file and it only contains the model and no settings. Could you please save the project (File menu -> Save) as that will contain the settings as well as the model. Thanks.

    Hi Samrtavionics,

     

    Saved it as you said how to save it, let me know if this is sufficient.

    I did a performance test on that 3.5 file using Callgrind and got this result: http://dulek.net/work/3.5-beta-callgrind.out.3886

     

    This seems to point to this change: https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine/pull/791

    We'll continue discussion there.

    I found another descrepancy

     

    I dont know if it is related to the same issue, but it is wall related.

    The model is sliced with 4 walls, and shows gaps in the layer view on the first layer infill, and thicker infill lines all throughout the rest of the layers.

    Slicing the same file with 2 walls thickness doesn't seem to do that and shows a clean slice.

     

    I printed the models first 2 layers but they are so compressed that it doesn't really show anything in real life or in a picture.

     

    Hope this helps you guys in figuring out the problem :-)

    Hi @phantom, Thank you for your assistance, but that looks very much like this issue, which will be/is fixed between the beta and the full release (as I recall, the fix is going through Q&A right around now).

    Hi

     

    I also tried the new beta and i got it almost where i want it

     

    but it add some to start and end gcode that i have not figured where comes from

     

    after install i picked prusa mk2 as machine and then i changed the start and end code to my liking 

     

    and i removed the start and end code from the mk2 json so it would not adding anything i did not like

     

    but still it add M82 to both start and end gcode, and it also add heater and bed switch off to end code even thou i have them in my end code

     

    i made a post here: 

    but i did not get the answers i was looking for

    After config an Octoprint connection with a printer, cannot open anymore the "Monitor" page, Cura instantly crashes.
    Is there any log file that I can send for debugging?
    Also happens with 3.4.1.

    See Cura.log in Help -> Show Configuration folder.

    Here's the log file.

    cura_log_monitor_crash.zip

     

    BTW, the Show Configuration Folder is not opening, I went manually to the Cura AppData folder.

    Depending on the value of the "Relative Extrusion" under "Special Modes", CuraEngine will either put an M82 or M83 before your start gcode. There's no way to tell it not to. If the M82 is bothering you, you can use a postprocessing script to remove the initial M82.

     

    The code, should you be interested, is here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine/blob/3.5/src/gcodeExport.cpp#L511

    will have a look

     

    btw i use windows, but as long there is a post process script out there that can remove it then i'm happy

     

    any idea why it also puts an M82 to the end code?

    the other mystery to me is the double switching off things in the end code

     

    Quote

    G1 F3600 E2091.48677
    M140 S0
    M104 S0 ; turn off extruder
    M140 S0 ; turn off heatbed
    G28 X; Home X
    G28 Z; Home Z
    G0 Y0 F5000 ; Move Y to middle of bed cooling fan
    M42 P11 S255 ; Turn on Bed cooling fan on
    M106 ; cool off nozzle
    G4 S660   ;wait 11 minutes
    M42 P11 S0 ;Turn off bed cooling fan
    M107 ; carriage fan off
    G28 Y; home Y
    M84 ; disable motors
    M82 ;absolute extrusion mode
    M104 S0
    ;End of Gcode

     

    so 2 times M104 and 2 times M140

     

    and the json file for the mk2 has the start and end gcode empty to prevent it from adding stuff to start and end code i dont want

     

    Quote

            "machine_gcode_flavor": { "default_value": "RepRap (Marlin/Sprinter)" },
            "machine_start_gcode": {
                "default_value": " "
            },
            "machine_end_gcode": {
                "default_value": " "
            }
        }

    tried the search and replace script, worked ok for the M82 "problem" but created an empty line

     

    the double switching off could not be solved as it would remove both those from my end gcode and those that cura inserts on its own

     

     

    the latter is more important as i have a sequence that move the bed in front of a larger fan to cool the whole bed off after print, reducing the time i have to wait before the PEI will let go. this takes about 10 mins where the printer just waits

     

    and to be honest what is wrong in having full control of the prodcued Gcode? but yes, i will try and figure myself if there are other scripts that can do the trick
