Mark 2 With Cura 4.4


Recommended Posts

Posted · Mark 2 With Cura 4.4

I had a mishap with my hard drive so had to install Cura so decided to go for the latest, it took a few attempts for cura to slice a model for the Mark 2 I think the heads were disabled (?)  any ways I got cura to slice but when I look at the printer under preferences machine setting there is a start script for the printer and end script but when I select extruder 1 or 2 there are no scripts just material ,diameter (2.85) nozzle offset X 0.0 Y 0.0 cooling fan number,, no  nozzle sizes nothing is this correct, sorry for the vagueness but did use the UM2 much lately but now need it.. any advise welcome

    i think so...

    • extruder specific scripts are not needed (what would you expect there....?
    • and i guess (not sure) the nozzle diameter is hidden, because there are several pre-defined "variants" for each extruder (which can be selected from the drop-down list in the settings panel)

    thanks for the reply, I think I was thrown a little by the little information on screen,  I seem to remember possibly  nozzle diameters,  but I am probably wrong,  I know the nozzle size is in advanced and found that setting in latest cura,, as I said many times I have not used cura or my UM2 for a long time and just trying to setup now in latest software, thanks for the advise I think it wont be the last time I ask, as setting up my Mark 2 I find difficult..

      • 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
