Where to submit feature requests?

Recommended Posts

Is there a canonical place for feature requests?

I'm new to Cura, and overall I'm liking it. I miss a couple things from repetier that should be simple to add (and may try myself if I can find the time.)

The specific fatures are:

1. showing the layer number during printing. This is handy if you want to pause at a specific feature or tweak the temp (for bridging etc.) I know I can edit the gcode, but I like to know where I am, not just which line of gcode.

2. Separate home buttons for X and Y. The way I have my printer set up, if I home and z is already low, I'll run into my glass clips. I've modified my starting and ending gcode so that it lifts before homing x and y, but if I'm jogging, it's troublesome.

Spotted it.

I'm thinking about what to do with the USB printing dialog. It has been neglected for quite a while (due to printing with SD card all the time) and it needs some re-designing, as it's confusing for the basic user and not powerful enough for the power-user. I'll keep your requests in mind when I finally get to this.

      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.
