Introducing Ultimaker Cura 3.6 | Beta

Recommended Posts

4 minutes ago, Smithy said:

Beside the bugs or fixed issues, I am asking me why we get so quick a new beta with version number 3.6 and not 3.5.2 and so on until everything works fine in the 3.5. branch?

 

Once a branch is made for a minor version (3.x), no new feature is allowed in that branch; in revision releaes (3.5.x) only fixes are allowed. The new beta contains new features, so a new minor version is needed.

Thanks ahoeben for clarification, was just curious about it, but makes sense.

And the memory leak goes back up again. Each screencap is about 1 minute apart from opening, to loading a generic 6 faced (12 triangles) box and then doing nothing more than positioning it at first.

Open Memory:

After Loading and positioning the box:

One minute later:

One minute after that:

Hey! It went down:

Oops, got my hopes up:

And it keeps rising:

And, so on and so forth:

I closed it down after that. So, it is still growing in size, even though nothing is happening inside Cura. I am just going from screen capping the task manager to Photoshop.

 

If I do not terminate Cura, it causes my machine to eventually crash. And, no other program I have does this.

If it is a generic profile, and people are printing PETG (Dunno about HIPS), then why is it not showing up as a generic?

 

And, it says it is loaded, but nothing else, that is just odd. No disclaimer.....

 

I only bring this up because it is a topic in another thread....The PETG, not anything else....

The generic profiles are not that generic. They actually represent Ultimaker materials just without a color. So you will always find only Ultimaker materials for generic profiles for Ultimaker printers in Cura. But as @Smithy said, the CPE and CPE+ profiles might work for a relatively broad range of co-polyesters including PETG.

And more seird stuff:

 

I named a file when saving and go to open it in the recent files:

FileName.jpg.c0602864ec6f049b58d284b127db3c94.jpg

 

And I get this, a double printer name:

FileName3.jpg.ef1fefaec467a45cd73428ce0f0febdb.jpg

 

I go to load it from the regular menu:

FileName2.thumb.jpg.ec0d57b838cfd3f5fcd90e547fad1309.jpg

 

And get this:

FileName3.jpg.9dd0c5edab1c6d5104f4e44c80b79dbf.jpg

 

So, I tire of fighting the name crap and go ahead and put my model together, merge it with all the parts getting their own settings and position it:

ModelCorrectPosition.thumb.jpg.829194f74bc3c83452810e9047627cf6.jpg

 

Then I notice an issue and reload the files and the entire model jumps around.

AfterReloadingModels.thumb.jpg.5bcf6d6c69dbdb1d65a61de9f3987b48.jpg

 

Which negates any careful positioning and, this is new behaviour. Even if I do nothing and just hit reload models, it will do the same thing.

Can I install a newer version than my current (3.4.1) which would be fresh from any influence from previous installed versions?  Might be a good time to go back to default settings, attempt to apply the material templates as they are intended, and sort of purge all the settings changes that I have accumulated over the past couple years.

@kmanstudios I have asked the Cura team to investigate your issues.

When a newer version of Cura doesn't find a settings directory for its version and finds an old settings directory, it will copy it and then convert it (when needed).

So what you would need to do is to move your settings directory, start Cura 3.6.0-BETA, close it. And then copy back the settings of the Cura versions you still want to run. The settings can be found in (Windows) /Users/[username]/AppData/Roaming/cura

Here is an odd thing: As I was poking around and setting up a 0.8 core print I noticed the CC red is there. So I checked it out. It apparently is only "compatible" with certain materials, but not things like PLA, etc. Ummmm, why?

 

 

Because we didn't make profiles for it. You can use them, but the results will probably not bee that good.

That seems odd. If people are going to buy the CC Red, it seems they would want to use it for more than just a few select materials. Not everybody has a 0.8 core and would be looking to buy the CC Red to hit two things at once: Abrasive materials and large bore prints with other materials.

Maybe it depends on the inner shape of this new CC core? I don't know, but the BB core has a different shape than the AA. So I guess, the CC is also different and therefore not so good for normal PLA prints.

Well, until we get something definitive other than "We don't make profiles for it." we will never know, yes? So, I do not gget into the maybes of the  issue. I just look at what it replied and question it if it makes no sense to me.

The behaviour of a nozzle is always different if you change anything (be it the material or the geometry) about it. So that's also the case here.

Yes, I understand that, but it does not answer why there would be no 'regular' profiles for it. As I said, if someone is looking to buy a large bore nozzle, they would want to be able to print something other than an abrasive material with it.

This is my “exact” intention otherwise the CC is an expensive specific use only Print Core.

 

I too am very surprised.

    • "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.
