Help, what have I done


Recommended Posts

Posted · Help, what have I done

Ok, I'm very new to 3D printing and Cura v4.10. I keep seeing a 'print settings' window in all the help vids I look at.. but that is not showing on my app. how do I get that to display and what (if anything) did I do to make it go away???


I attached 2 pics, one of what I see and one from a help vid showing that print settings window that I can't see.

    It isn't loaded at installation.  Go to MarketPlace (upper right) and then Plugins / Community Plugins and scroll down to Printer Settings and install it.

    Mostly they are guides for other settings in Cura.  For example, if you have your max Z feedrate at 10 in Printer Settings and try to set the Zhop speed to 20 you will get a warning and Cura won't slice.

    I think the only thing it's required for are multi extruders that share the heater and nozzle (like the 2-in-1-out hot ends).

      • 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
