Posted · CURA for Mac OS 10.13


Just a beginer in 3D printing....

I just bought a creality ender 3 Pro and tried to install Cura on my iMAC. 

Last version of CURA is not compatible with my software which is 10.13.

Is it possible to get a previous version of CURA and where can I get it ?

Thanks for your help.

    Posted · CURA for Mac OS 10.13

    Hello Community! I work with an iMac under OS X 10.13.6 (High Sierra, supports both 32 and 64 bit applications) because I have several pieces of hardware and applications that do not run on OS X after v10.13. Upgrading would mean for me, that I have to invest more than 1'000 € in software upgrades and new hardware.


    Development of CURA seems to go in the direction that does no longer supports OS X 10.13. Is there any chance that a newer version than 4.10.0 of CURA will come for OS X 10.13?


    What are the new functions that we don't have, that are in later versions of CURA?


    OS X 10.13 is from 2017/18 and that is like "allmost new" for Mac users :-).


    Thanks for your help.

    no that will not come, you can only use the laters version of Cura which is still running on High Sierra. Cura depends on some underlying libraries and these libraries are mostly also not compatible with such an old OS.


    Regarding new functions, check the release notes to get a list of new features after 4.10.0.


    I think you will have not much alternatives than upgrading your OS in the near future. High Sierra is quite old, and 4 major relates behind the current one. So you will also see problems with other software, except the ones you have currently installed.

    Definitely not 🙂

      • 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.
