About the "Cura anonymous usage information"

Posted · About the "Cura anonymous usage information"

About a year ago, I added the "anonymous usage information" checkbox in Cura, which submits some info about how you are configuring Cura to YouMagine.

Last week, I finally took a small look at this data. And, I found out that due to a change in YouMagine, I only have data of a few months in 2013. Which is a bit of a shame, and a year old. (It's about 14000 records of data)

What I did see however, is that the vast majority of people use Windows. (93%) Next up, to my surprise, was Linux (6%), and MacOS was only used a tiny bit (<1%)

The MacOS version of Cura had still some issues back then. So I'm suspecting that's impacting that number a bit.

Still need to do some statistics on the used profiles.

    Maybe Mac users, like me, are more careful of submitting "anonymous usage information" :)

    I'll turn mine back on again, maybe it helps getting the Mac version to work better :)

    Well, as I said, in the current version it does not work (it requires a change in the Cura code)

    It should work in the latest RC:

    Still, as this data is a year old, I'm taking it with a huge amount of salt. (And, we have almost all Mac's at the office, so the Mac version does need to work)

    I think this effect is called 'reality'? ;-)

      • 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
