Vorab muss ich leider eingestehen, dass ich mich immer wieder erwische, wie ich dieses extrem überladene Slicer Programm nutze. Ich bin schon lange kein Freund davon und werde es wohl auch nicht werden, aber irgendwas ist dann doch wieder da, was mich zur Nutzung zwingt.

Bereits am Dienstag wurde eine neue Cura Version veröffentlicht, welche nun in einer V4.9 Beta Version zum download bereit steht. Es gibt viele Fehlerbehebungen sowie neuer Profile und neuer Funktionen. Wie es mit Simplify3D aussieht, sollte glaube ich klar sein, denn diese werden es wohl nie mehr schaffen an den aktuellen Slicern ran zu kommen, so dass es denke ich mal Sinn macht, sich an einen neuen Slicer zu gewöhnen. Auch wenn S3D sehr einfach ist und gute Arbeit macht, aber die Konkurrenz trumpft immer wieder neue Sachen aus dem Ärmel.


„Line type“ is now the default color scheme.When entering the Preview mode, you don’t have to switch manually to line type.Z-seam is now clearly shown in preview mode.This ensures that you will know whether the seam will be sufficiently hidden in the end product. This will also indicate the starting point of the print.Thanks to @BasF0 for contributing to this feature

Other Features

New ‚line width‘ color-scheme available in preview mode.Line-width can now be selected as a color-scheme in preview mode.Weight estimation in decimals.This provides a more detailed idea of the amount of material used – which is especially useful for smaller prints.Split Shell category into Walls and Top/Bottom.The shell category was a mix of settings about walls and settings about top/bottom, splitting them into two categories makes more sense.Post-processing script to embed screenshot in g-code.The ability to have thumbnails embedded.Contributed by @Gravedigger7789.Add checkbox for Extruder Offsets.Ability to enable or disable the extruder offsets to gcode. This will be enabled by default unless it is in the printer’s def.json file.Contributed by @RFBomb.Various Mac OSX (and other) fixes afforded by upgrades to Python (to 3.8) and Qt (to 5.15).If you had (UX, visual, graphics card) problems, specifically on (newer) Mac OSX versions, please try this new version.
