Can I turn off auto slicing?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can I turn off auto slicing?

Problem is I often places very complex parts in cura and it tries do slice these objects before I'am ready with placing and rotating them correct.

This is no problem, if cura uses multicore processing (I got only 24 cores there should be enough power do slice the object instand, we discussed that in another tread) but when cura only uses one core it takes long until you can replace your object and rotate it.

Is it possible to turn off the auto slicing and to the slicing when you press a button?

Yes like the old days of cura.

It might be a useful setting in new cura.

Also I hope that a profile manager is integrated. I got 20-30 print profiles and always load the profile from the hard disk with clicking around in the folders is very time-consuming.

Maybe you can change the profile folder to a standard one, so you don't have to search your profile folder?

    For the current version it is not possible.

    I know that it's often requested maybe pink unicorn will have that feature?

    I like the idea for the print profiles it would work like the plugins it's a good suggestion i think

    Instead of a profile-manager, you could use the machine manager right now, as every machine has it's own profile. It's a bit of a hack, but it can help you with managing a lot of different profiles. (14.07 allows you to rename machines which helps in this case)

      • 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
