In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
Some of these older printers will only read up to 32GB SD cards. Is it possible you got a new SD card? Do you still have the old SD card? I'd try a 4GB card if you have one.
This looks like an old Makerbot Replicator which only takes gcode files in x3g format. But it looks like a clone which I would then assume takes gcode but I'd try renaming a file to have the extension x3g just to see if the printer sees the files.
The contacts for the SD card can get hair/dust in them. I'd try to vacuum it out with a vacuum cleaner for 2 seconds although it's possible that will create static electricity and destroy everything? I've done it - vacuumed out my SD card - it didn't destroy the printer. But I did it in the summer when humidity was high.
Re-seat the 2 ribbon cables that I expect run to the board with the SD card reader (or maybe that was just an ultimaker thing - not sure).
