Version de Cura et Firmware


Recommended Posts

Posted · Version de Cura et Firmware


Bien que je lise le forum attentivement depuis 2 ans c'est mon premier message, j'ai jusqu'à présent eu toutes les réponses dans les posts des autres. 😉 Du coup je me présente, je suis prof dans un lycée technologique.

Nous avons une UM2+  depuis deux ans (et déjà plus de 1000h d'impression) et deux autres UM2+ toutes neuves. Comme le réseau informatique du lycée est important nous ne pouvons installer des logiciels que de manières sporadique et compliquée ou lors d'un renouvellement biannuel. La version installée sur les ordi est pour l'instant Cura 2.7.

Ma question est donc la suivante, dois je mettre à jour les firmware des imprimantes (v3.3 pour les neuves et 2.6.2 pour la vieille) ou dois je absolument passer tous mes ordinateurs en V3.6 qui apporte bcp de nouveautés sympa) ? Est ce que si je laisse comme ça marchera quand même ? (en tout cas pour le moment ça à l'air de fonctionner)

Bref quel est le rapport entre la version de cura et le firmware ?


Merci d'avance.

    Bonjour Mathias,


    Bienvenue sur le forum.


    A prioiri il n'y a aucun lien entre la version de Cura et le firmware. Le firmware de la 2+ évolue très peu depuis la sortie de la 3 et il est stable donc je pense qu'il n'y a pas besoin de faire la mise à jour du firmware.


    Cura 3.6 ça vaut peut être la peine si vous avez besoin des nouveautés... si c'est compliqué d'installer les logiciels je pense que le mieux c'est de partir sur une version stable (je dirais la 3.4?)

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
