Cura

This is the new, shiny frontend for Cura. daid/Cura is the old legacy Cura that everyone knows and loves/hates.

We re-worked the whole GUI code at Ultimaker, because the old code started to become a unmaintainable.

Logging Issues

Use this template to report issues. New issues that do not adhere to this template will take us a lot longer to handle and will therefore have a lower pirority.

For crashes and similar issues, please attach the following information:

  • (On Windows) The log as produced by dxdiag (start -> run -> dxdiag -> save output)
  • The Cura GUI log file, located at
    • $User/AppData/Local/cura/cura.log (Windows)
    • $User/Library/Application Support/cura (OSX)
    • $USER/.local/share/cura (Ubuntu/Linux)
  • The Cura Engine log, using Help -> Show Engine Log

Dependencies

  • Uranium Cura is built on top of the Uranium framework.
  • CuraEngine This will be needed at runtime to perform the actual slicing.
  • PySerial Only required for USB printing support.
  • python-zeroconf Only required to detect mDNS-enabled printers

Configuring Cura

  • Link your CuraEngine backend by inserting the following line in home/.config/cura/config.cfg : [backend] location = /[path_to_the..]/CuraEngine/build/CuraEngine

Build scripts

Please checkout cura-build

Making profiles for other printers

There are two ways of doing it. You can either use the generator here or you can use this as a template.

  • Change the machine ID to something unique
  • Change the machine_name to your printer's name
  • If you have a 3D model of your platform you can put it in resources/meshes and put its name under platform
  • Set your machine's dimensions with machine_width, machine_depth, and machine_height
  • If your printer's origin is in the center of the bed, set machine_center_is_zero to true.
  • Set your print head dimensions with the machine_head_shape parameters
  • Set the nozzle offset with machine_nozzle_offset_x_1 and machine_nozzle_offset_y1
  • Set the start and end gcode in machine_start_gcode and machine_end_gcode
  • If your printer has a heated bed, set visible to true under material_bed_temperature

Once you are done, put the profile you have made into resources/definitions, or in definitions in your cura profile folder.
