Allow Cura Upgrade??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Allow Cura Upgrade??

Hi, guys.  I've got an older Anet A8 (maybe 3-4 years old) that came with Cura 14.07.  Every time I load Cura I get the message that an upgrade is available and asks if I want to install.  When I first started working with 3d printing I read somewhere on line that the Anet does not play well with higher versions of Cura, so I have declined the offered upgrade.

 

Now, reading a lot of content on this and other sites, it looks like newer versions of Cura come with some different/enhanced features over the Version 14.07 that I've been using.  In fact, a lot of the problem "fixes" refer to settings that are not available in my Version 14.07.  So, I'm wondering if I should allow the upgrade to occur.

 

Anybody know if the offered upgrade will play well with my Anet A8?  Will there be advantages to upgrading?

 

Appreciate any input.

Hi minuteman,

 

afaik you can keep your version 14.07 and install the acutal version besides it, so you could test the new version and if it works, just uninstall (or keep) the old version; if it doesn't: just use 14.07.

 

Regards
