Posted · possibility to create different options for the same piece

hi, 

Is it possible to make the piece, a cylinder for example, be printed with different options depending on the height? or certain portions?
I know that with slic3r it is possible but I can not do it and I would like to continue using cura

 

thanks

    Have a look at the g-code postprocessing plugin. You can find it under extensions in the top menu bar. The tweak at Z might do what you need.

    I know you say you want to use Cura, but the options with post processing are limited. If you really need to tweak different heights (or parts of the item) Simplify3D gives you way more flexibility.

    You can also use per model settings, and either cut up your model beforehand and reassemble  them in Cura, or by using the Mesh Type dropdown you can use a mesh as a modifier mesh. Caveat: you cant change the layer height in this way.

      • 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.
