save as ufp


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · save as ufp

Morning is it possible to change the format from gcode to ufp by default?


I have an Ender3 Profile in Cura 4.7.1 with octoprint connection and it works like a charm. Now I added the CuraThumbnails Plugin to Octoprint to see the thumbnail form the ufp file.

I can slice and use save as *.ufp, than i have to transfer the file to octoprint manualy, so this works.


I found under PrinterSettings that i can change the G-Code-Var. In my case by default "Marlin", I changed this to Ultimaker2 without effect.


I dont know where to change the export format to ufp to send the file as ufp directly to the printer via cura octoprint plugin

    The OctoPrint Connection plugin detects if the CuraThumbnails plugin is installed, and sends files to OctoPrint as .ufp without having to configure anything in Cura, regardless of the printer brand.

    Don't do that, that will not work with your printer and it will not in any way affect the use of .ufp files.

      • 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
