I was still using 4.11 and just noticed that multiplying objects wasn't working any more. I intended to drop you a note about this minor issue in the forum and bang - there's already a fix available! Wow, that was quick!

Great job! Thanks a lot for the continous improvement of Ultimaker Cura.

I believe there is a bug with exporting models to gcode. When finishing layer and starting new one movement over x axis is duplicated. I managed to record a video where you can clearly see how layer position has shifted.

    Hi,

     

    Tested Cura 4.12.1 and see a difference with Cura 4.11 during Travel,

    I think that the Combing Mode don't work in Cura 4.12.

    See the difference between the 2 images i post.

    gave it a try and it sems that the solidworks plugin is not working when launched via solidworks any more. always shows an error indicatind a damaged or corrupt SW file. When opening directly in cura, the same happens...

    uninstalled and back on 4.11, everything is working as intended...

    When switching to version 4.12.1, I noticed that there are problems with the Combing mode. Previously, this option worked better and did not create empty shuffles.

    Layer pattern Zig Zag adds empty movements.

    Combing mode should be left as before or reworked.

    You can try when you disable "Monotonic Top/Bottom Order" if get what you expect.

    Found a temporary solution starting Cura under admin mode. It seems there is an authorization problem when Cura tries to acess SolidWorks files. This problem was NOT present in v4.11.

    I'm not sure if it is a bug or something not fully implemented, but the z-offset setting is not accepting a negative value, regardless of what its tooltip says "A negative value 'squishes' ... etc.".

     

    A negative z-offset could be very useful for printers with UBL autoleveling and BlTouch feature installed. It could be the adjustment distance between the theoretical zero (supplied by BlTouch action) and the nozzle tip.

     

    Any comments?

    A negative value for the z-offset can be max your configured layer height, otherwise you would push the nozzle into the build plate.

    Sorry, don't understand. That is precisely the effect I want to achieve, lower the nozze tip under the theoretical zero coordinate (remember the printer card works on theoretical spatial positions).

     

    Printer homes z-axis with the help of either the axis end switch, or in my case the BlTouch reported "touch" position ... that hapens to be 2.05mm BELOW the nozzle. That distance depends only on the support adapter where the BLT is mounted.

    The Z Offset setting is provided by a plugin (created by me), not by Cura 4.12. From the readme of that plugin:

    Quote

    The Z Offset can never be lower than the negative of the Initial Layer Height. That would result in a negative Z value, which at best would be caught by the firmware and result in an error during printing, and at worst would lead to the nozzle being pushed into the build plate, damaging the printer. So with an Initial Layer Height of 0.25, the Z Offset is limited to be -0.25 or higher.

    Thanks ahoeben ... didn't see the readme ... my bad.

     

    Ok, then my idea won't work.

     

    The problem is that when BlTouch is in place, the bed level will be always below the nozzle. That offset can be setup in firmware, but could be very usefol if it could be tweaked for eveery slice.

    Then do a rough offset in the firmware (say -2.0 mm), and fine adjustment using the plugin (say -0.06 mm).

    Please enable it on OSX 10.13 High Sierra.
    It works fine on Kubuntu 21.10 in the same iMac's Varial Box.
    I want to avoid wasting resources.

    Hey team,

    Since the 4.12 & 4.12.1 has been installed on my machine (Mac) I cannot select my model and it doesn't let me use the icon on the left on side. 

    Do you guys have faced the same issues? What solutions did you come up why?

    Cheers

    @BOULBA, if you have multiple displays, you could try to uncheck the option to "Restore window position on start" in the General preferences in Cura. Then restart Cura.

    I have 4.12.1 and after I slice the model when I try to preview the sliced model it crashes. Attached pic of error.

      • 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.
