Question about filament loading in Cura 14.07

Posted · Question about filament loading in Cura 14.07


I didn't try the new firmware (my UM2 is going to be replaced very soon and I need to prepare it for shippment).

I've read in the "what's new" popup in Cura 14.07 about the "just load filament" option. What does it do?

And btw. how does one access the what's new window in Cura?

    What happens, is that people that move their printers a lot, they use the change-material to remove the material. But then half-way shut off the machine, so they can transport the machine without a roll attached. However, they have to go trough the whole procedure again to load the material again. So I made a quick option which skips the first half of the change material.

    (Also added an option to reduce the motor current in the motion settings. Not really useful for daily use, but could be useful if you replace the extruder stepper motor with something else)

    So we also need a "just remove filament" option? :p


    You have, if you turn the machine off before inserting new material ;-)

      • 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
