Cura 5.1 and Siemens NX plugin


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 5.1 and Siemens NX plugin



I have been using Cura since 3 years now and I found it amazing.


Thanks for that.


But now, with Cura 5, I cannot find the Siemens NX plugin.


What am I missing?


Now, I am back to 4.5 because of that...


anyone can help me, please?

    There's not a lot I can help you with, but I can point you to the repo for this plugin: https://github.com/Ultimaker/cura-siemensnx-plugin


    I even tried to debug (see the issues section) it for Cura 5.x but ultimately failed at installing the corrected file. Should be an easy fix since I suppose the new folder structure of new cura is the culprit... but who knows.

    The NX interface was (is using) a NX Vb script to detect the last Cura Release . And this script is searching in the registry key 

    Const strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"  


     but Cura 5.X doesn't use anymore this WOW6432Node  folder. Have you try to modify "SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"  into "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" ?

    As far as I remember, this is about what I've done to the script. Here's the issue I raised and you can test the attached file im my post: https://github.com/Ultimaker/cura-siemensnx-plugin/issues/6


    Unfortunately my programming skills are next to non-existent and I don't know how to install it, so I can't tell if this fix really helps.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
