Cura development for Linux 32bit x86 and for ARM64?

Recommended Posts



Cura 3.x on my Intel 64 bit Ubuntu Linux is excellent for which I am very grateful.


I have been searching for a slicer that I could run on my Chromebook and through the use of the Android UserLand app, I can run an Ubuntu installation and Cura 3.1.0. This works surprisingly well via a local X-server or VNC client. I've done the same on my Samsung S9 phone for entertainment!


I was wondering whether the Ubuntu package files for the 32 bit x86 or the 64 bit ARM (aarch64 / ARMv8) versions of Cura 3.1.0 will ever see any updates for later versions?

It had been nice to have a RPi3 with monitor to run and monitor a network attached UM3 and hence no need for a continuously running PC.
Using Octoprint seems to be different compare to CURA itself.

I have a raspberry with octoprint connected with my printer. I have configured Cura on my laptop to send gcode directly to octoprint and start to print. Then I can turn off the laptop and control octoprint from the web interface or with a mobile app.


Maybe you should give it a shot.

    • "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.
