Hi Daid,

Realy nice how Cura is making 3D-printing easy.

Any change that support type line will be back in the support types? It was so much easyier to remove, pick one wall and pull the whole support material off.

Thx in advance.

Xiao Shi Zi.

    You can change to the line type of support in the expert settings: Expert -> Open expert settings... In the window that pops up there will be a drop down in the top right called "Structure type", there you can change to the "Line" style.

    Thx for the quick reply!

    I was still using 13.11 where the choice was not yet available...

    Updated to 14.07 where the choice is indeed available.

    Thx!

    Wow, that's quite an old version, about time you updated :) You might also want to do a firmware update if you haven't, especially if you have an UM2.

    One more point.

    The "old version" of line support made a one wall support. This version only put parallel lines without connection inbetween at the extremity.

    Any way to activate?

    Using Cura for Prusa i2.

    Sometimes there are functionality 's who were better in older versions ;-)

    like the hexagon infill, was nice to see in transparent and also gives a certain extra rigidity ;-)

    Also before updating I rather wait a little (six months is quit long indeed) to see the problems others gave.

    Greetz,

    As Is proven again :(

    No posibility to change anything when sending to a prusa i2 with the option Print with USB...

    Only one window pops up

    Saying :

    Operational

    temperature: 39 Bed: 23

    Connect (grayed out) Print (choice to make) Cancel print (Grayed out)

    No more able to change parameters before starting or while printing :( :( :(

    Going back to older version, but then I don't gave line support...

    Daid is there a reason why I can't see the menu for usb printing???

    Using Cura 14.07 on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit with a Prusa i2 USB connected.

    Greetz,

    Xiao Shi Zi.
