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!
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.

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.
It might be your Start-Up Gcode. At the very least there is contradictory information contained in the stock StartUp Gcode for the N2 Dual.
This is from the end of the StartUp Gcode from the "N2 Dual" model that is included with Cura. (Raise3D is listed as the author of the printer definition file for the N2 Dual).
T1; left tool
; set extruder steps per mm
T0; left tool...??????????? C'mon man! Does it have ambidextrous hot ends?
;move up a bit
G1 Z5.0 F9000
; wait 300ms
;fast move to center
G1 X152.5 Y152.5 F9000

You can see that even with T0 disabled in Cura that "T0" is hard coded in the StartUp to print the skirt.
The command to Zero the extruder (G92 E0 E1) would be illegal in Marlin. It may be a good command for the printer's firmware but maybe that line should really be G92 E0 T1. (That's a guess by the way.)
At any rate, I think your StartUp Gcode needs to be reviewed to see if it is the problem.
If you could copy it from Machine Settings in Cura and paste it here then someone can take a look.Edited by GregValiant
