Can you look at a single layer in CURA?

Posted · Can you look at a single layer in CURA?

I have just had my first play with "Pink Unicorn" and like what I see.. But I immediately noticed something that I am surprised isn't there in CURA and thats the ability to look at a single layer?

In CURA you see the layers immediately below the one you are looking at, and whilst they fade away, its often difficult to know which layer you are looking at.

Considering this functionality is available on most other apps I have seen, and now P.U, I just wondered if I was overlooking something in CURA?

Is there a way to just show a single layer?

    Uhm, PU can look at single layers, while the current mainline can not.

    PU changes the left dialog when you switch to layer view.

    (Note that this is just quickly hacked together for debugging of other stuff)

    Sorry.. I probably didn't explain myself.. I saw the "Single Layer View" in PU.. And I just wondered whether there was something similar in the current version that I had overlooked.

    I was pretty sure there wasn't (and you have confirmed this) but thought I would ask, as the Layer View in CURA can sometimes be annoying when you are looking for something on a specific layer.

    Not only that, but it would be awesome to be able to see infividual layers as well as travel path to see how layer is going to be printed by moving a slider or something.

    Craftware has those features that i absolutely love, but it has one thin i absolutely hate :)

    Hi,

    OK, but is it a replacement for Cura - or what is the purpose?

    Is it usefil for Ultimaker 2?

    It is the future version of cura, so yes, I guess you could say it will replace cura (but it will still be called cura, PU is just a code name). It will be useful for Ultimaker printers as well as many others as well, just like the current cura.

    will it come with exact same perimeter issue cura has,had and will have till the day i die ?

    You know the one where it does not retract when switching perimeters and where it wont finish entire perimter before switching to the next.

    Hi,

    is there any timeline when PU will replace the current cura?

    Makes it sence to use PU now instead of 'normal' Cura?

    Not even remotely close.

    I switched to craftware pernanently.

    By the way, do you guys ever plan on fixing issue where 0.9mm high cube (for example) with layer height at 0.3mm only generates 2 layers and not 3 ?

    Your Signature seems to be incorrect. Just look at IRobertI's

    The timeline is to have a first test version out in about 4 weeks. Note that this will lack some features compared to the current Cura.

    No, don't use the PU version linked earlier. We did one step back again when we hired Arjen. And the earlier test version no longer reflects what's actually being made right now.

    That means any Github sources aren't updated to the present status, correct?

    Yes, the work repo is private right now. (Also due to the fast changing nature of this code)

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
