Cura firmware compatibility

Recommended Posts


I have a quite recent Ultimaker (received end of may).

It has a stock Marlin Firmware (Marlin 1.0.0 RC3 Last Updated 2012-05-16 | Author Erik).

I also got an official UltiController and Netfabb.

I would like to try Cura, but i have the following question:

If i generate a new Marlin firmware, using Daid's Build-me Marlin (btw, thanks!) for UltiController compatibility, as far as i understand, it will work with Cura. But then, can i also use ReplicatorG (choosing Skeinforge or Slic3r as a toolpath generator) or NetFabb, or shall i first switch back to the stock firmware?

Build-me-Marlin is just a configurator to help us compile Marlin (Thank you Daid!) , So it's fully compatible with Marlin 1.0.0 RC3 AFAIK. Anything you could do with that, you could do with Marlin Compiled with Build-me-Marlin.

I know first hand that it works fine with Netfabb, but I rarely use it now. I do miss how fast it sliced and the interface, but it's too far behind now without 5D and working retraction.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
