Cura Parameter for Min / Max Print Coordinates?

Posted · Cura Parameter for Min / Max Print Coordinates?

Hey guys, I was hoping that Cura could pass parameters for the minimum and maximum x and y values used in a given print.

 

My thought is that you could push these values forward into mesh leveling bounds and quickly probe the area of bed being used without waste.

plus 100 for this one.  I feel like Ultimaker could save millions of man hours on this one (assuming there are a million S5 and S3 printers out there, he he).  It would save their own employees significant time as well.

    AFAIK, this is already implemented in the firmware for the S5 (and S3?).

    Cross-posting is not always a good idea; it splinters the discussion.

     

     

    The overlap between devs on GitHub and users on the UM forum is probably pretty small.

     

    On this forum, it's possible some users have already found ways to do this.

     

    On GitHub, the devs have the ability to add features or report details that might be otherwise unpublished.

    So, where do you want my input? Here or on github?

     

     

    Completely up to you.

      • 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
