    Duplicate Printer Presets to a NEW Preset so that you can make test changes and still retain the old Presets

    If you have feature requests, this is not the place to put it. Please read the original post.

    Cura won't provide support for Resin printers.

    Hello. I am an ordinary user from Russia, and I have a 3D printer from the Russian manufacturer "Vector". I have been using your Ultimaker Cura software for a long time. I really like her. I have two 3D printer profiles. These are Vector 200 and Vector A4. If you add them to your database, then I think that many users from Russia will be very happy about this. I also think that even more users of your program will be added. I can send you these files, but I don't know where. Everything is up to you. Thank you.

    Cura software, version 5.0.0-beta+1, gets quarantined by my McAffee anti-virus software.  I just noticed this when the executable mysteriously disappeared.  I restored it; but, it keeps getting quarantined again later.

     

    I thought this was something folks should know about.  I also would like to know if someone has a solution to this problem.

    Also Cura 5.0.0-beta+1 does not let one copy/paste from/to the manage printer Start G-Code and End G-Code areas.

    As described in an answer, i have problems with saving slicing-results to my harddisk.

    I use Cura 5.0 as an apimage on an Arch-Linux, using the Mate-Desktop-Environment. 

    I am using the german language-setting.

    The filename-text is empty when using "Auf Festplatte speichern". You can click on this filename and press a key, it is placed inside the filename-text, but the next keypress is located in to the cearch-field.

    Typing more characters is possible by deleting the search-text and pressing again with the mouse into the filename-field and pressing a key.

    Using too much charachters inside search-field lead to an unuseable cura that has to be stopped the hard way.

     

    Edit: When using a file thats already on the harddisk, the software asks two times if this file should be overwritten. Have changed language to english, but the problems remain.

     

    Hope that helps, can't wait to use the software without the need to click and type and renaming files after saving...

     

    Thanks

    Hartmut

     

    Edit2: this thing seems to be a problem of a used Filehandling-Routine. It happens when trying to save a image in Brave-Browser, too. Any hints what to do to get this working?

    Cura 5.1 Linux

    My computer is running Linux Mint 20.3, if it matters.

    Printer extrudes too fast on rounded corners while the printhead is moving very slow.  It is trying to extrude so fast that the extruder just strips the filment.

     

    Strangely, I got it to print properly once, but can't get it to work again.  I'm getting failed print after failed print.

    I've tried both 5.2 and 5.2.1, and it simply will not launch.  Running Mac OS 10.15.7.  Last stable build is Cura 5.1.

    I've read this topic, but there isn't even a 5.2 folder appearing.

    The problem was something in the custom g-code text.

    Hi all I’ve been using v5 for a few weeks and am impressed 

    one problem I have come across is this. I drew a phone case with a cut out on the back of Iron Maiden 

    I printed it and it printed a solid case,even the camera hole was solid

    so I thought I would do a simple test , drew a 50 x50 x2 square and put a 40 mm hole in it , again came out solid

    Today I put an object in the slicer the part has 3 holes in the top layer 10 mm deep, I can see the holes . I slice it 

    and they disappear just a solid top

    Anyone else experienced this

    Thanks Dean

      • 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.
