Cura-Plugin request


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura-Plugin request


I 've noticed after prolonged testing that the surface of the print is a lot better if the fan is disabled. See this post: http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/5375-top-layers-not-touching-um2/page-19&do=findComment&comment=93213

Therefore, I am asking whether someone can write such a plugin. I know it works with tweak at z but only with input from layer- nr , fan speed , etc.

It would be simpler to say: Disable fan on the last layer. With a checkbox for activating or deactivating. (Like in the current version of retract while combing with first and last layer only)


I would write it myself but I have ( unfortunately) no knowledge about programming. :cry:


thank you


greets dirk

    That would work only in that specific case. You probably want to do it for the top infill only and maybe not for the perimeter.


    I think the m106 s0 or m107 must be added after ;TYPE:SKIN in the last Layer or?


    I could introduce a behavior 'Apply to last layer only' in TweakAtZ...


    This would also be helpful.

      • 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
