Cura 4.13.1 - Do I Have The Correct File?

I tried to download Cura 4.13.1, based on a recommendation that it was a stable, relatively bug free version.  Not sure if I have the correct downloaded file - no apparent way to designate operating system, etc. before download.  Anyways, the downloaded file I ended up with is:  "4.13.1-amd64.exe."  I'm running Windows 10.  Is this the actual download for V. 4.13.1?  I don't want to install some odd ball program by mistake.

 

If the above isn't the actual download for 4.13.1, where would I find it?  When I go to the upgrade section of this site the only option(s) appears to be V. 5.xx.

    The only official download location of UltiMaker Cura for 4.13.1 is here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/releases/tag/4.13.1 if its not downloaded from here then its possibly some "odd ball program"

     

    But with that said, I do wonder where you were told that it was the most stable version? It is a year old now, and the Core slicing engine got a significant update after the release of that version...

    I got the 4.13.1 recommendation from here:  

    I don't know 3.2 but the newer versions use a "Project File" that is a special 3mf file and contains the printer, all the settings, and the model.  You might find it in the "File" menu as "Save Project".

    What operating system are you on?  The latest versions don't work on Win 7.

    4.13.1 was very good.  The 5.x releases are coming along but aren't quite there yet.

    As for the user manual - the latest releases have a plugin available from the MarketPlace that has excellent descriptions of all the settings.  It is appropriately named the "Settings Guide".

    Why do I give it credence?  I assume anybody on this site knows more than I do about Cura 🙂

    That is the location I accessed.  There were six files available for download, with no identifying markings other than file name.  The first file listed was the 4.13-amd64.exe.  That was the only one that actually looked like an .exe file, so that's the one I downloaded.  So, for Windows 10, is that the actual version of Cura 4.13.1?

    Yes, the -amd64 is the "64bit" architecture used by windows. Even if you are using an Intel processor its still amd64 architecture.

    Cura has not been supported on 32bit windows since 2.5.0 if my memory is correct.
    in the past installers were named -win64  but this was changed a few years ago to -amd64

      • 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.
