Hwo to turn off the new adaptive line width?

Posted · Hwo to turn off the new adaptive line width?



I need to turn off the adaptive line width feature, that was included with version 5 of Cura. Is there a way to do so, or do I have to use an older version? Basically its all about the precision and when there is a gap between walls I need it to be there and not to be filled with a very thick line.

    Hey @FGoOse,


    Unfortunetly, if you don't want to use the new engine with the variable line width you'll have to stay on 4.13.

    Here is an overview of settings that we introduced to tune the variable line width. 
    If it's model specific we can try to work with Mesh Modifiers to make certain parts single walled. 

    Do you have a project file for us so we can help you to troubleshoot?

    To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

    Its more like a general thing. Guess I will stay on 4.13. for now, which isnt an issue for me. Always worked great for what I was trying to achieve. Thanks for the information.

      • 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
