Hi everybody,

Ultimaker Cura 4.13 is here!

Last release, we focused on quality, this release we want to increase your productivity. We optimized our print profiles for Ultimaker printers. We accomplished this by:

-        New 0.3mm layer height profile

-        Improved printing methods of solid parts
 

 


Material synchronization

In the Ultimaker Marketplace you can find more than 200 materials, which are compatible with Ultimaker printers. You can now easily synchronize the material profiles to your printers via the Ultimaker Digital Factory.

Here’s how it works:

-        Subscribe to a profile from the Ultimaker Marketplace

-        Open or restart Ultimaker Cura

-        Click “Sync”, and there you have it: the profile is on your printer exactly when it’s needed

Use any Ultimaker S-line 3D printer (with firmware 7.0.1) and Ultimaker Digital Factory to get started!


Add thumbnails to 3mf files:
On Windows you can now see a thumbnail of your model from your 3mf file in Windows file explorer
thanks fieldOfView for this contribution!


Bug fixes:

-        Fixed an issue that caused the native CAD import plug-in to fail loading, blocking users from opening CAD files in Ultimaker Cura

-        Fixed an issue that caused the “pause-at-height” script to stop extruding after resuming on large prints

-        Fixed a bug with surface mode will not print all layers

This release of Ultimaker Cura does not contain as many features for the Ultimaker Community as you may be used to. That said, a lot of amazing things are coming very soon! In the meantime, join the Arachne engine second beta – and be part of Ultimaker Cura’s next revolution!

I just installed 4.13, as an update to my 4.8, but when I go to the backup plugin to restore my settings, it requires a restart of Cura.
However, it just shuts Cura down and never boots back up. If I start it up manually, I'm shown the introduction screens (to add a printer etc...) all over again..

If I first add a printer and then follow the process, that printer is gone after restoring the backup.

    Have you considered adding the "lightning" support concept to the external ones too??? 

     

    Should probably have a setting deciding weather the support is allowed to touch the outer walls. This in order to have support point (anchors) at X numbers of layers, in order to sort of lean onto the walls for support. Just like you do with anchors on a scaffolding on the outside of a house.

     

    There could even be an option to have the support grow of the side of the wall, just like lightning does internally, but with fewer points to allow breaking it off. 

     

    When I first discovered "tree" support, I actually thought that it did like lightning, but it don't seem to cut down on material and print time that much.

     

    Imagine how many tons of wasted plastic could be saved each year, with clever support structure. Not to mention print time, which is my biggest reason for writing this....

    The lightning support looks great. Testing as I write...

     

    But it would be nice if the was an option to set a numbers (distance in mm and/or mm2) for how big a wall can be, before it would get a cross-brace and be connected to the wall on the other side.

     

    Big items gets squizzy on the side, if the walls are not supported. And big parts are the once that would benefit the most from lightning support, so it would be a shame if we can't use it here.

     

    I don't see any way to put something in the CAD model to make this, without creating a hole in the wall. But maybe someone smarter than me can show how??

    I just upgraded from 4.11.0 to 4.13.0 and somehow my Machine Settings button is now missing. 😕

     

    I don't see anyone else talking about this yet.  Is it just me? I've added and removed several machines, restarted several times, etc.

     

    I added an issue to the Cura github repository:

    I apologize.  This looks to have been an issue with my profiles.  I installed both 4.12.1 and back to 4.11.0 and they both exhibited the same issue.  I backed up my profiles, deleted my profile directories using Option 2 on this guide and restarted and now the buttons are back.  After restoring my profiles all is well.

    No, not without a link to your Cura.log. See https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/#logging-issues about where to find that file.

    I have updated to this new version and the printer profiles are gone, I tried to import them by hand but once you restart Cura they are gone again.

    Hi Guys

     

    How do i get a copy of 4.13 as a msi ?

     

    I have been asked to put Ultimaker Cura on our network so our teachers can teach 3D printing.

    The exe that is available isn't any good when it comes to silent installs hence needing the MSI.

     

    I understand that the software is free and i have found version 4.5.0 as an MSI but nothing newer

     

    can someone shed some light on this please as we have students eager to learn Cura

     

    Please advise

    AFAIK, the msi installer is only available for "Ultimaker Essentials" customers. That is a non-free subscription. Your choices are:

    * get an "Ultimaker Essentials" subscription

    * learn to live with the .exe installer

    * create a .msi or alternative installer yourself

     

    For the last option, I personally often just unzip the .exe installer. Provided the proper MSVC runtimes are already installed, Cura does not need to "install" much, other than the files in Program Files and a start menu icon.

    I use 7zip, but many other archive applications will let you do this.

    I had Ultimaker Dark theme installed under 4.12.

    After upgrading to 4.13, I noted that the post-processing "modify g-code" search and replace dialog is unusable.
    I cannot see any of the input fields on the right hand side where the search and replace and "use regex" tick-box is located.
    I switch to the Ultimaker theme and was able to edit those fields.

     

    One problem with the workaround of switching to Ultimaker theme (not dark), is that though this bug was fixed, I cannot see travel lines unless I am in Ultimaker dark theme mode.

    Then you did something wrong extracting the files, because it is certainly there:

    NB: I am extracting files from the Ultimaker Cura installer, which is an .exe file. I am not talking about the source files that you can download as a zip.

    You have to be a lot more specific than that. What printer do you have? What is your operating system?
