Ultimaker Cura 4.9 beta


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Cura 4.9 beta

The beta version of Ultimaker Cura 4.9 is here. This release contains a bundle of bug fixes and feature improvements increasing software stability, and further simplifying and streamlining print preparation as you continuously strive for first-time right results.  


What’s new? 


The Z-seam is now clearly shown in Preview mode.  
This ensures that you will know whether the seam will be sufficiently hidden in the end product. This will also indicate the starting point of the print.   





Thanks to BasF0 for contributing to this feature.  


“Line type” is now the default color scheme.  
When entering the Preview mode, you don’t have to switch manually to line type. This will improve your user experience. 




Weight estimation in decimals.  
This provides a more detailed idea of the amount of material used – which is especially useful for smaller prints.   




We added 18 printer definitions for third-party printers. This makes Ultimaker Cura more accessible to you the community users. 
Bug fixes: 

  • “Connect top/bottom polygons” setting. We have fixed a bug in which this setting was unintentionally hidden when initial layer bottom layers are set to “concentric”.   
  • Ultimaker Cura not slicing. We have fixed a bug causing Ultmaker Cura not to slice a model if one sub-model of a group was below the build plate. 
  • Security patch - Fixed a security vulnerability on Windows permitting the openssl library used to launch other programs. Thanks to Xavier Danest for raising this bug. 


For more information on new features, bug fixes check out our Github release page, the blog post can be found here

The update of the Cura looks really fine and I'm getting good results, but there's still a bug.

If I use the horizontal expansion for squares, then it works fine. But if I use the horizontal expanion for cyrcles, then the cyrcles wont be round enough and the printer makes weird stops. It begins at +0.001 and will end exactly at +0.12. The horizontal expanion in my example is +0.06.1287628901_Cura4.9troubleshooting0_00.thumb.png.f39e221498bb14dc8cd2bc26c6cbde31.png1050047879_Cura4.9troubleshooting0_06.thumb.png.07924a9d2e4fe4164d159a105334ba54.png179463612_Cura4.9troubleshooting0.06explained.thumb.png.67ae21c8ea026fb9eebaa6d1791174ee.png


Thanks for your help

      • 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
