Hi All

I am trying to install Cura at a further education college and would like to use a software client to install it, for this is would need the silent install code. Does cura have one and does anyone know it?

Many thanks

Tom

    Hi Tom,

    I know this is rather a late reply, but I've been able to perform a silent install by running the exe file with a /S parameter on the end.

    I do however have another question that is related and hope that people will be able to help us here (sorry if this is a little bit of thread hijacking!)

    After I've performed the silent install, when the program runs for the first time it wants to run the First Run Wizard. I've found the .cura folder under c:users<username> and the config file within, but I'm wondering if there is anyway to setup the defaults for the program during the install?

    I can when deploying the software copy files into the relevant location if needed, but looking in the config file it seems to have hard coded certain paths to the current user, which isn't great for machines that will see many users.

    Is anyone able to provide help with this step?

    Thanks,

    Will

    Just thought up an anternative way without modifiying Cura code.

    Cura also looks in:

    C:program files (x86)Cura_[any_version]

    For the preferences and current_profile ini files. So if you place files there, it will get copied as default for all users.

      • 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
