About the "Cura anonymous usage information"

Recommended Posts

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)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
