Hi All,

Version 14.03 Doesnt slice and has been unusable for me since launch. So been using prev versions. However I can find the Github page, but must be thick or something as cant for the life of me find a list of versions to download.

I know of these pages http://software.ultimaker.com/

https://github.com/daid/Cura

Cant find a download list on Daids page...:s

Can anyone send me a link to prev versions, have a print job required for the morning :S

Hope someone can help

Cheers...

    Embarrasing...but finding a specific version with .exe to google brought up this page http://software.ultimaker.com/?show=all

    Which I now see is expanded from clicking the link in that page...could I flag a note to who ever makes that page, to make this easier to spot or use an Icon?

    Sorry to waste ur time reading this..

    Solved.

    Cheers for coming to the rescue. that was a close call. Win 7. But to be frank this machine does have issues with windows update. Have problems with .net stuff for example.

    Just installed version 14.01 and thats got me out of a bind. For future ref is there any reason not to use the latest marlin etc with backdated versions of cura. As it would be written before the firmware im now running.

    Thanks

    Chris

    No, you don't have to keep the firmware and Cura matched.

    Thoughts on why the current version is broken for me? Is this unusual or common problem?

    win 7? Possibly graphics drivers. But then that would only crash in layer view I think? I don't know but there were some changes at 13.04 in the layer view display.

    Also there is a bug in 13.04 where it slices too many line segments even if they are only .00001mm long. So try reducing your polygons. How many millions of polygons do you have? Or try thicker layers - try 1mm layers just to see if it will slice.

    You can reduce polygon count with this technique (it worked well for me and meshlab is free):

    Also try slicing a small stl file just to see if it can slice *anything*. Try the smallest STL file you have. Preferably under 11k even though Cura can usually handle 1Mb STL files just fine.

    If it can't slice that then go to microsoft update and look for "optional" graphics driver updates. That solves *so many* problems.

    I recall someone had a softwsre firewall issue with 14.03, the internal communication was changed I thin sibce 14.03...check your fw settings to allow cura to communicate with itself?

    There are other bugs in 14.03 affecting surface quality so try latest beta at software.ultimaker.com/Cura_closed_beta

      • 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
