FYI it's harder to get a copy of cura 15.X these days so I'm hosting it here (sorry, I only have the windows version):

Cura 15.04.06 for windows

 

It doesn't have nearly as many features as the latest cura and doesn't support UM3 or newer printers and it supports dual color printers but not second-extruder-support.  But it works very well for 90% of printers out there and in some cases produces better prints (not sure why).  I usually use the latest Cura but occasionally still use this old version when printing on my um2go printers.

Windows Cura 15.04.06  is the only version that I can get to directly (USB) print to my Anet A8 printer. I mistakenly deleted it while installing a newer version. I have reinstalled 15.04.06 but now am having trouble with having the system recognize my progress plugin. I copied it in Cura_15.04.06/plugins directory but when I look at the Plugins tab to select it, it is not listed; only pauseAtZ.py and TweakAtZ.py. If I click the Open plugin location button at the bottom of the Plugins tab I see it listed with the other 2. I am kinda at a loss as to how to select and activate it. It has been a long time since I set this up originally so maybe there is something I am missing.

Thanks for any help.

    Using on one of my computer the Cura Master 4.6  32 bits release made by Mark Burton aka @burtoogle

    Working fine ( just an issue with the version of OpenGL on this hardware but this is normal as it is an old computer)

    Thanks for sharing, Ghostkeeper!.

    BTW, Does anybody know which Debian/Ubuntu version should be used with the above 15.04.6?

    I tried to install it under Mint 20 Ulyana and the installer tells it cannot fulfill the dependencies...

    Also with Ubuntu Focal Fossa and Tahr. After years using it on Windows and having tried most of the current advanced slicers, 15.04.6 still gives me the best printing times, and I don't need all those bells and whistles for what I'm doing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Jes.

    The 15.04.06 Debian archive specifies that it requires the following packages:

    • python-wxgtk2.8 or python-wxgtk3.0
    • python-opengl
    • python-serial
    • python-numpy

    I don't know in how far those are still maintained for modern Ubuntu or Mint versions. You'll probably still be able to find them online somewhere but maybe not in apt. These are for Python 2, mind you, which has reached end-of-life.

    Thanks a lot. I've been trying several different older distros and I've found out that Xubuntu 18.04 LTS installs okay the above mentioned .deb file and covers all dependencies.

    Thanks for adding this, I got Cura up and on Xubuntu but it hangs at "Opening Serial port" on the Pronterface UI.  Was there anything else you needed to do?

    Sorry to be so late.

    I first installed printrun and Arduino 1.8.13 and then Cura and everything went fine.

      • 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 5.3.0-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.
