Cura profile/support for Felixprinters Pro L


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura profile/support for Felixprinters Pro L



I've a Felix Pro L printer.

Until now, I've been using S3D as main slicer & printer software.

However, the situation at S3D (the company) makes me want to look for an alternative/backup slicer.


Cura is of course one of the alternatives I'm looking at. So I've some questions to get started :


1. How can someone create a profile for the Pro L, so it appears in the list of printer profiles to choose from? (I know you can create a complete customized FFF profile, but it would be handy if one would be created, which can be used for all Pro L owners out there)


2. Is there an alternative way for Cura to support "network" printing for non-Ultimaker printers?

By this I mean simply send the generated gcode to the printer (it does not "need" to manage the printer)

In S3D we can do this by a post processing script, which uses the printer's API (the Felix Pro L runs Repetier server internally):

"curl.exe" -i -X POST -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -H "x-api-key: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" -F "a=upload" -F "filename=@[output_filepath]" "" -F "group=Default"


3 Anyone who has moved from S3D to Cura who is willing to share tips or lessons learned?

(it looks like most of the transition work like settings etc will be a manual task)


Thanks for the feedback

      • 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
