Posted · Where do I find the settings for Draft Shields



I am only new to Cura, I am trying to find the setting for Draft Shields, I have activated the settings under the experimental heading. Now I want to set the shield distance/height and use the shield to assist with better prints.


Can anyone please help.


Thanking you in advance

    To the right of the Settings Search box is an icon with three lines on it.  Click on it and set the visibility to "All".  Your draft shield settings should all be grouped together in the Experimental section.

    Or just type "draft" in that area where it says "search settings".   To the left of that red circle above.

        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.
