Cura support for 3D Platform WorkSeries 100 printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura support for 3D Platform WorkSeries 100 printer

So, our college has 2 S5 Ultimakers; but, someone thought we needed a bigger platform printer.  Thus, they bought a 3DP WorkSeries 100 -- which we were told is supported in Cura and so we could use Cura to slice files to be printed on it.  However, I can't find the WorkSeries 100 printer (or any WorkSeries printer from 3D Platform) listed as an option.  Any help on configuring Cura to be able to slice a file for this thing would be greatly appreciated.  I have a Biology Faculty who want me to print them a skeleton for the A&P lab!

    I think the best option is to set up a custom machine. You can find that option when adding a new machine to Cura.

    That's a heckuva machine.  Reading through some of the information regarding print speeds and accelerations, and the fact that they do recommend Cura, maybe somebody at 3D Platform has developed printer definition and extruder definition files.  It would be worth checking with them or maybe a support forum.  It appears to run RepRap firmware.

      • 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
