CURA 4.8 software


Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA 4.8 software

I'm brand new to 3D printing, and I have a question about the new CURA 4.8. I'm currently using 4.0 because the newer version doesn't seem to support my printer, Tenlog hands 2. Or am I missing something in the setup menu?

    Ultimaker has the good grace to include 3rd party printer definitions in Cura.  Those definitions are created by 3rd parties and submitted to Ultimaker for inclusion in the program.  If there is a Tenlog definition file in your 4.0 setup you could copy it to "Cura 4.8\resources\definitions" and restart Cura.  It should show up, but I'm not sure if all the variable names and such are the same.  It might be missing some settings.

    The alternative is to add a Custom FFF printer and make all the adjustments to Cura settings so it matches your own printer (2 extruders, firmware flavor, build plate size, etc).  The firmware flavor is the most important so the printer understands the generated Gcode.  BTW that's a nice looking machine.

      • 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
