Ultimaker Cura 4.12 beta


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Cura 4.12 beta

Hi everyone,


Today we release the 4.12 beta and we have improved our print profiles together with our material engineers. We’ve tweaked the Monotonic setting and made adjustments throughout print profiles. This removes occasional scarring on models and improves top surface quality by default and will increase first-time-right results.

We have also looked at horizontal print quality, processing several improvements. This results a reduction of ringing, improving resolution and overall print quality.

Lightning infill:


We have a new infill type called Lightning. This infill setting enables you to print high-quality top layers while using less material and increasing your production speed.

Lightning infill is based on this paper and was a research project inside Ultimaker. Thanks to rburema and BagelOrb!


App switcher:
The new app switcher provides a simpler way to navigate and use other Ultimaker applications, including Ultimaker Digital Factory, Ultimaker Marketplace, and Ultimaker 3D Printing Academy. Reporting bugs to Github is now just one click away, and it’s easier to find the application you need.


Bug fixes:

-        Fixed a bug with monotonic ironing that causes fan speed jump to 255 for ironing pass

-        Fixed an engine crash when using monotonic ordering with zigzag skin pattern

-        Fixed inconsistent material name in the header and material selection dropdown

For more information read the full release notes or our blog post.

And don’t forget to give us your feedback here in the comments or on Github.


Please note this version of Ultimaker Cura is in the beta phase and still under development. Be sure to use the latest stable release if you’re working on an important project.

I just downloaded the 4.12 beta because my 4.11 stopped allowing me to move objects, the same way 4.9 & 4.10 did. I'm using a 2018 MacBook Pro, and I was hoping that the bug for this would get fixed. I've been on the forums and tried opening a plugin dialog, changing the privacy permissions and restarting the ap. I tried going back to an item that worked just fine on the weekend, but nope, nothing is working. I updated my OS to see if perhaps I was missing something there, and nothing. Any chance this will be fixed in the 4.12 before it is released?
