I printed out the Isis bird statue from Hyde Park mentioned in a previous thread. I used bronzefill. The neck is slender, and I broke it trying to polish/sand it. Bronzefill isn't cheap, and I'd hate to go with a high infill in areas of that print that don't need it. Is there a way to just increase infill at certain Z ranges? I have a UM2 and have been using Cura.

    Just downloaded pauseAtz.py, TweakAtz.py, swapAtz.py. Placed them into the plugins directory but they're not showing in Cura (14.10 RC4) Is there another step besides copying them into Curaplugins folder that I'm missing?

    I don't recall which version exactly of Cura has problems with plugins but it might be the 14.10 version.

    14.09 is the latest stable version i would use that one if you need plugins

      • 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
