Lack of user manual


Recommended Posts

Posted · Lack of user manual

I know that there are numerous tutorials, but as a new user I find that I cant watch a tutorial and set up cura at the same time.

My printer was supplied with V4.8, I'm happy to upgrade but really could do with some printed documentation.

    The best start is probably to go to the Cura Marketplace (link is at the top right of the workspace) and install the "Settings Guide".   I don't know how that will work with legacy versions like 4.8.

    Cura 4.8 was popular with some printer manufacturers (Creality in particular).  It's fine to use.  I think 4.13.1 would be a better choice but that's one user's opinion.  It somewhat depends on the printer.  If (for example) you have a belt printer then your choice is severely hampered.
