Posted (edited) · Ultimaker Cura 4.0 beta 2

We've just released the second beta of Ultimaker Cura 4.0 and we'd love your feedback.

The more feedback we get from you now, the more we can implement into the stable release - coming soon!


Some new additions you can expect in Ultimaker Cura 4.0 beta 2:




Based on your feedback, the print core type in the configuration selector header is now visible and the custom mode settings panel is now adjustable to show more settings at once.




With an Ultimaker account, you can also access an early preview of Ultimaker Cloud features. These will become fully available with the release of firmware 5.2, which will be available very soon.

    Most of my plugins are now available for this beta in the Marketplace. Two are One is still awaiting approval from Ultimaker.


    Note that plugins that are now becoming available in the Marketplace probably will not work with beta 1; they need beta 2.

    Firmware 5.2 beta was pushed to the S5 testing channel yesterday, so if you have an S5 and Cura 4.0 beta 2, you can test the new Remote printing feature on your S5, and print outside the realms of your local network (as well as some other cool stuff). Feedback encouraged!

    I seem to be stuck with an unloaded filament but can't convince Cura + firmaware to let me print. I had nylon loaded in #2. I've since disabled #2 to print some #1 PLA. If we drop down the printer, it knows there is nothing in #2:




    However, I select that configuration (Whilte PLA + none), it doesn't take ... It still thinks there is nylon. This is also in spite of the extruder being disabled (I could go on at length at how bad Cura is when you have a single filament print but two things loaded ... like using the higher bed temp of the two, despite one of them being unused....). I select the config, and it remains convinced nylon is loaded. Then, if I print ...




    Short of lying about nylon being loaded, I'm not even sure how to get it to print (though haven't tried that hard)


    Basically I cannot convince Cura that nothing is loaded in #2

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
