Cura 4.9 + Dremel 3D45, get config error but works :)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.9 + Dremel 3D45, get config error but works :)

I'm pretty new to 3D printing so I bought a Dremel 3D45 (good printer for noobs like me).


The supplied slicer (Cura old version) looked a bit limited compared to Cura 4.9 so I took the risk of

installing it.


First I tried on a Linux (ubuntu) machine but the "AppImage" blocked me from adapting

Cura 4.9 to the Dremel 3D45. So I went back to Windows 10 version. Managed to copy the needed

.json files to Cura 4.9 and despite the "Config error" messages it seems to work.


Had to manually type in all the parameters (sigh). Cura 4.9 refused to accept my modified Ultra Quality

0.05mm profile from the previous software due to "high" quality not available. Should I transfer the "High 0.1mm"

profile first and then Ultra may be?


Imported a part and Cura 4.9 made the gcode as I wanted. It's printing now 🙂 Hopefully without too many glitches.


Looks like the inital error configuration message is a bit exagerated (so far, time will show).

    The 3d print came out just fine! I will definitely continue using 4.9.

    Got to transfer all required profiles, hopefully 4.9 will accept those

    with 0.3, 0.2 and 0.1mm. Maybe the trick would be to increase 0.05

    to 0.2 temporary and then import ... stupid me ... it was a bit late ...

    to my excuse!

    Upgraded to Cura 4.9.1. Found some bugs in 4.9 but did not reach to report them before 4.9.1 came out.


    Tip to others who might do the same, don't uninstall the original Dremel slicer. Why? Because every time

    Cura is updated You got to do the same copy of Dremel files to the Ultimaker Cura new version.


    Beware the support ZigZag pattern may cause nozzle clogging on circular parts with small overhangs.

    Struggled a lot before I realized this ...


    So don't wast time doing a lot of useless fix like this dude

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
