Plug In Wish - Simplify3D FFF to Cura Import Option?

Hi

 

I'm hoping someone talented in code can consider this!  Several vendors offer FFF profiles for their machines but not a Cura one.

 

I understand the FFF is a big text file and perhaps some fields from S3D do not direct transfer to Cura.  (Perhaps the import process could report what it couldn't transfer?)

 

Please don't flame me....  🙂  Just a wish list item myself and a few peers have chatted about.

    I suggest you forget it, because many settings are fundamentally different.

    Let's see what a programming person says

    I'm very sorry to say that curasurf is completely right. Once Arachne is merged this is going to be more impossible to convert settings from one slicer to another.

      • 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
