Hey guys;

 

I've been using the older versions of Cura, and they were really fine, but I find these last versions, trying to become smart, are really stupid. Like for example, before, I could just check a parameter and see it in my parameters list, but now, even if if the parameter is check, I can't see it, because I have to change some other parameter that I can't even find, and this makes me really angry. Is there a way to avoid this cura nonsense, or should I switch to another software, like simplify 3D or others ?

    There are multiple ways to change the visibility in Cura; you may want to check out https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52858-custom-mode

     

    Some groups of settings only become visible if you enable that feature, e.g. support settings are only visible if support is enabled. That makes sense for me; maybe it does also for you?

    Thank you for your answer,

    By visibility settings, I mean for instance the visibility of the nozzle temperature setting. Even if in the options, I turn the setting to be visible, It says that I have to change some other settings to make it visible, and those settings I just don't know where to find.

    Are you on an Ultimaker 2 or 2+? That one is special because it stores the main print parameters in the printer and you have to override it. If you want to override those settings in Cura, you indeed have to change the gcode flavor to "Marlin" in the machine settings. So that is a special case because of the printer, not because of Cura. Every other printer should have the print temperature in the custom settings in Cura.

    You said "yes" to the override message on the display of the printer, right? In case of doubt, it's always a good strategy to first add a new Ultimaker 2+ to Cura and then switch that new one to Marlin. Like this you make sure it starts with default settings that should actually be fine for that printer.

    Yes, I said "yes" to the override message on the printer. I will try to add a new ultimaker 2+ to cura as you said. I hope it will work. Thanks a lot 🙂
