Ive been using flashprint for a long while but after getting a new printer that slicer just wansnt cutting it anymore. So i dowloaded cura. But I can not find my printer in the program. I can not find my other one either a flashforge adventurer 3. Doi have to make a custom one because I looked it up on youtube and google and found lots of profiles and tips for my printer on cura so people are using it here

    Did you have any luck? I found a profile for the non pro on thingiverse, but it does not print well, for instance left extruder heats up and right extruder is used none heated. I manually edited gcode and realised there was a discrepancy between the numbers (.0 used on left not right) so this meant both extruders heated, but the print doesn't stick to the bed at all. 

    Looks like I'll be doing a lot of digging if no one has got it working yet!

    The 4.x versions of Cura have a plugin in the marketplace for Flashforge printers.  I really don't know anything about it but I followed the link for "Ronoaldo Consulting" to THIS GITHUB PAGE.  There is also THIS PAGE.

    When Cura was moved from the Qt5 controls and dialogs to Qt6 most of the marketplace plugins needed to reworked.  That may be why it isn't available yet in the 5.x versions of Cura.  It's something you can look into though.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
