Thank you!

It is running great on a 2gb Pi4, like you said the preview of the gcode is a bit slow but it is working.
The slicing process is surprisingly fast! I was slicing a 5mb stl in les then 30 seconds! That is twice as fast than my laptop running on a Celleron N3450 and 6GB!

Don't tell me, the laptop's running Windows?!

 

Anyway, glad the Pi release is working well. It's a shame but I don't think the preview display will ever be any better because of the low level of OpenGL supported by the Pi4 hardware. Still, it's a lot better than not working at all.

I have been attempting to build cura on my arm board ( using the guides they published ) and not having much luck, any tricks to know about? ( its not an RPI so i cant try these binaries floating around )

You could try building using my versions of the cura-build-environment and cura-build repos. They are both at github.com/smartavionics. If you check out those repos and use the mb-master branches in both it will build exactly the same as used in my arm releases. Perhaps you can then modify the build to be suitable for your hardware.

 

Assuming all the prerequisites are installed, in cura-build-environment do mkdir build, cd build, . ../run-cmake.sh, make. That downloads and builds Qt, Python, etc. Once that has finished (takes a few hours), in cura-build do similar, mkdir build, cd build, . ../run-cmake.sh, make. That actually builds the AppImage. 

 

Good luck!

The file is an AppImage. You make it executable (chmod +x filename, or via the context menu in your desktop manager) and run it.

Must do something wrong...!

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ chmod +x Cura-mb-master-armhf-20191226.AppImage
chmod: cannot access 'Cura-mb-master-armhf-20191226.AppImage': No such file or directory
pi@raspberrypi:~ $
