Posted · New top/bottom pattern - Hilbert Curve

After trying PrusaSlicer for a while, i'm moving back to cura. I just prefer it over PS. But if there's one thing i loved while tinkering with prusaslicer is this awesome top/bottom patternt it has. It's called "Hilbert Curve". Looks like the image below. This is a mesmerizing thing to watch getting get laid down, and the final result is just as mesmerizing. Any chance this can get added?

In Cura by ultimaker I don't know, But in Cura in my opinion there is about 100% chance as it already exists.

    It's in a fork of Cura (so not the one provided by Ultimaker)

    So am i asking this in the wrong place? I don't think so, cause i grabbed Cura from the main ultimaker.com site. Is there any way this can get added to the UM Cura?

    No, you are asking it in the right place.

    Anyhow; We haven't looked at porting the hilbert curve over to our version of Cura. If someone feels like it, we would more than welcome a Pull request that does that. It would greatly improve the chances of it ending up in a future version of Cura!

    Feature requests are always okay, but the more work it takes, the less likely it is that we will actually have the time to do it. Making this PR would require a fair amount of technical skill and I expect that it would also take a few hours to port things as well.

      • 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
