Barbarian Plugin Question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Barbarian Plugin Question

Hi. Just got Cura and have a question about the Barbarian plugin regarding converting from mm to inches.


It only gives me the option to convert to to metric, but i was under the impression this plugin would allow you to do the opposite.


My model loads into Cura and shows as mm but when i use Barbarian to convert to metric it gets too massive for the printer.


am i missing something?


Is there truly no way to convert "back" to my original model dimensions?

    Cura works in mm, and the Barbarian plugin does not change that (nor is there any other plugin that does).


    If you have a 1" cube, it should become a 25.4mm cube in Cura. The barbarian plugin helps you if the model instead imports as a 1mm cube. Note that a 25.4mm cube is in fact the same ("original") dimensions as a 1" cube, even if its dimensions are shown in mm instead of inches.

        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
