How do I save backups to cloud or separate computer?

Hi! Yeah, you can make backups in version 4.9.1. Navigate to 'Extensions' -> 'Cura backups' -> 'Manage backups'. From there, you can sign in with an Ultimaker Account (or create one if you haven't already), and create a backup. You can also enable 'auto backup', which will store a backup of all your settings every day (if you start Cura) automatically. Once you've created a backup, you can restore it via this window as well (this will wipe your current settings and replace them with the ones in the backup).

    Hi,

     

    The backups are securely stored in Ultimaker's cloud. You can restore a backup in any installation of Cura as long as you're signed in with your Ultimaker Account (for example you can create a backup on your desktop and restore it on your laptop, as a way to synchronise settings between Cura installations).

     

    There is currently no option to download the backups and store them on your own computer or cloud service. However you could quite easily achieve this by using for example the Selective Sync feature of Dropbox and selecting the Cura user folder as one of the folders to synchronise.

      • 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
