Thoughts on the Cura User manual

Recommended Posts

Hello! my name is Menno, I am Interaction designer at Ultimaker.

 

For the last weeks I've been working on the Cura User Manual, with the goal to give the already user friendly cura even more insight. https://www.ultimaker.com/pages/our-software hit the [view the manual] to check the latest version out.

As we keep developing our software we also like to know what you're missing or what you need further explained in software and the manual. I'm curious what your obstructions, ideas and thoughts are about how cura is helping you to make a 3D print?

Hi Menno

I haven't yet read the manual thoroughly, so i have nothing to suggest. Just wanted to say, that you do a very important job.

At my university I regularly give seminars about 3D-printing and I have to explain how Cura works, which isn't easy for me as i use it on daily basis and often can't understand what problems the newbies have when they use it for the first time.

To have a real manual for this powerful software that explains its installation and use step by step should really save me time and make the beginners more confident.

Thanks.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
