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.
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.
