Couples bugs in 4.4.0 (Not actually bugs, sorry.)

Hi! First, I'd like to say that I like Cura so far. It's good software, with a ton of options, and the interface is intuitive. However, there are a few bugs that I'd like to point out.

 

1. It fills empty spaces in my models. I have tried a few different ones, and spaces that have exterior walls forming holes get filled completely. I tried opening the same models in Splic3r, and it was not an issue. See screenshots for reference.

2. The layers preview only replays the last layer or two, there's not way to make it go all the way to the start.

3. Also, I noticed the interface is quite a bit slower since 4.4.0 came out. It's not a bug, but... I don't know if it was really that necessary. I have an i7-7700k with 32GB of ram, and I can imagine it would be very slow for people with slightly older hardware.

 

Again, saying that to help improve the software, not to nag, and I am thankful for the work that is being put in it.

    Please save the project (File -> Save) and attach the .3mf file to this thread so we can check it out. Thanks.

    That sounds like your layer view is operating in compatibility mode? Do you also get the horizontal slider on the bottom? Please post a screenshot of the problem.

    1 - turn off the Union Overlapping Volumes setting.

     

    2 - grab the blob at the top or bottom of the layer slider and move up/down, doesn't that alter the layers displayed in colour (not greyed out)?

    Yes, it works! Thank you so much! I was searching for solutions yesterday, but only found an old thread about it and nothing about overlapping volumes! This is great. Sorry for my ignorance, he he. Thanks again for taking the time.

      • 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
