The monitor page of Ultimaker Cura has been remodeled for better consistency with the Cura Connect ‘Print jobs’ interface. This means less switching between interfaces, and more control from within Ultimaker Cura.
Project files can now be found in the ‘Open Recent’ menu.
New hotkeys have been assigned for quick toggling between the translate (T), scale (S), rotate (R) and mirror (M) tools.
A 3MF extension is now used for project files. The ‘.curaproject’ extension is no longer used.
The maximum zoom has been adjusted to scale with the size of the selected printer. This fixes third-party printers with huge build volumes to be correctly visible.
The layer number indicator in the layer view now displays numbers above 999 correctly.
This screen has been redesigned to improve user experience. Materials can now be set as a favorites, so they can be easily accessed in the material selection panel at the top-right of the screen.
Packages that are already installed in the Toolbox are now have a checkmark for easy reference.
Saving compressed g-code files from the save dialog has been removed because of incompatibility with MacOS. If sending jobs over Wi-Fi, g-code is still compressed.
Improved and updated Simplified Chinese translations. Contributed by MarmaladeForMeat.
Saving the project no longer triggers the project to reslice.
The Save option in the file menu now saves project files. The export option now saves other types of files, such as STL.
Overhang walls are detected and printed with different speeds. It will not start a perimeter on an overhanging wall. The quality of overhanging walls may be improved by printing those at a different speed. Contributed by smartavionics.
The prime tower has been improved for better reliability. This is especially useful when printing with two materials that do not adhere well.
The support infill lines can now be rotated to increase the supporting capabilities and reduce artifacts on the model. This setting rotates existing patterns, like triangle support infill. Contributed by fieldOfView.
Polygons in sliced layers that have a circumference smaller than the setting value will be filtered out. Lower values lead to higher resolution meshes at the cost of increased slicing time. This setting is ideal for very tiny prints with a lot of detail, or for SLA printers. Contributed by cubiq.
This setting enables the user to reduce or increase the density of the support initial layer in order to increase or reduce adhesion to the build plate and the overall strength.
Adds extra walls around infill. Contributed by BagelOrb.
Creates multiple infill lines on the same pattern for sturdier infill. Contributed by BagelOrb.
Connecting infill lines now also works with concentric and cross infill patterns. The benefit would be stronger infill and more consistent material flow/saving retractions. Contributed by BagelOrb.
New setting to modify the fan speed of supported areas. This setting can be found in Support settings > Fan Speed Override when support is enabled. Contributed by smartavionics.
New setting to define a minimum flow for thin printed walls. Contributed by smartavionics.
A tool downloadable from the toolbox, similar to the support blocker, that adds cubes of support to the model manually by clicking parts of it. Contributed by Lokster.
Adds a pause/play button to the progress bar to quickly toggle autoslicing. Contributed by fieldOfview.
Adds output devices for a Duet RepRapFirmware printer: "Print", "Simulate", and "Upload". Contributed by Kriechi.
This plugin adds the Dremel printer to Ultimaker Cura. Contributed by Kriechi.
