New in 3.2.1:

Bug fixes

  • Fixed issues where Cura crashes on startup and loading profiles
  • Updated translations
  • Fixed an issue where the text would not render properly

New in 3.2.0:

Tree support

Experimental tree-like support structure that uses ‘branches’ to support prints. Branches ‘grow’ and multiply towards the model, with fewer contact points than alternative support methods. This results in better surface finishes for organic-shaped prints.

Adaptive layers

Prints with a variable layer thickness which adapts to the angle of the model’s surfaces. The result is high-quality surface finishes with a marginally increased print time. This setting can be found under the experimental category.

Faster startup

Printer definitions are now loaded when adding a printer, instead of loading all available printers on startup.

Backface culling in layer view

Doubled frame rate by only rendering visible surfaces of the model in the layer view, instead of rendering the entire model. Good for lower spec GPUs as it is less resource-intensive.

Multi build plate

Experimental feature that creates separate build plates with shared settings in a single session, eliminating the need to clear the build plate multiple times. Multiple build plates can be sliced and sent to a printer or printer group in Cura Connect. This feature must be enabled manually in the preferences ‘general’ tab.

Improved mesh type selection

New button in the left toolbar to edit per model settings, giving the user more control over where to place support. Objects can be used as meshes, with a drop down list where ‘Print as support’, ‘Don't overlap support with other models’, ‘Modify settings for overlap with other models’, or ‘Modify settings for infill of other models’ can be specified. Contributed by fieldOfView.

View optimization

Quick camera controls introduced in version 3.1 have been revised to create more accurate isometric, front, left, and right views.

Updated sidebar to QtQuick 2.0

Application framework updated to increase speed, achieve a better width and style fit, and gives users dropdown menus that are styled to fit the enabled Ultimaker Cura theme, instead of the operating system’s theme.

Hide sidebar

The sidebar can now be hidden/shown by selecting View > Expand/Collapse Sidebar, or with the hotkey CMD + E (Mac) or CTRL + E (PC and Linux).

Disable ‘Send slice information’

A shortcut to disable ‘Send slice information’ has been added to the first launch to make it easier for privacy-conscious users to keep slice information private.

Start/end gcode script per extruder

Variables from both extruders in the start and end gcode snippets can now be accessed and edited, creating uniformity between profiles in different slicing environments. Contributed by fieldOfView.

OctoPrint plugin added to plugin browser

This plugin enables printers managed with OctoPrint to print via Ultimaker Cura interface (version 3.2 or later).

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug where the mirror tool and center model options when used together would reset the model transformations
  • Updated config file path to fix crashes caused by user config files that are located on remote drives
  • Updated Arduino drivers to fix triggering errors during OTA updates in shared environments. This also fixes an issue when upgrading the firmware of the Ultimaker Original.
  • Fixed an issue where arranging small models would fail, due to conflict with small model files combined with the “Ensure models are kept apart” option

New in 3.1.0:

Profile added for 0.25 mm print core

This new print core gives extra fine line widths which gives prints extra definition and surface quality.

Profile added for Breakaway material

New material profile for Breakaway material, a new dry post processing support material, which can be used for models with flat surface area overhangs.

Layer view

The existing Layer View has been updated in order to see a live simulation of all the paths within a layer.

Quick camera controls

New buttons have been added to the interface that can quickly reposition the camera view of the buildplate.

Lock model on platform

The move tool has a new option to lock a selected model to the platform.

Faster profile switching speed

Duplicating and removing a profile could take Ultimaker Cura quite some time, it now happens instantly.

Faster printer selection

Removing a printer from the library is now instant. No more unresponsive screens.

Faster processing speed

A 5 - 10 % speed increase when calculating normals, loading models, and slicing.

Feedrate visualization

Feedrate visualization has been added to the Layer view. Using this gives the user an idea of the print speeds per model part, allowing for better control over prints.

Jogging

It allows the printhead to be moved with on-screen controls. Contributed by fieldOfView.

Large model loading

A new feature has been added which unloads the layer view when switching to solid mode, speeding Ultimaker Cura back up without losing your G-code/layer view information.

Scripts folder

A scripts folder is now available in the Ultimaker Cura configuration folder. This folder can be loaded with post processing plugins scripts, which will automatically show in Ultimaker Cura. Contributed by fieldOfView.

Optimized workflow for crash reporting

Crash reports are automatically generated and allow the user, in case of a crash, to easily send their report with a description to developers.

Floating models enabled

In previous releases, models were dropped to the build plate when support was disabled. Models now float when the setting is enabled (even if creates an impossible-to-print situation). This can be used to stack separate models on top of each other.

Slicing tolerance

A new setting that affects the intersect point to influence the dimensional accuracy for diagonal surfaces. The user can select the behaviour: ‘Inclusive’ makes gaps narrower, ‘Exclusive’ makes gaps wider, and ‘Middle’ is the fastest to process. This can be used to create better tolerances for printed screw holes. Contributed by BagelOrb.

Optimized zig zag patterns

Zig zag patterns now print more consistently. Lines now have a 5 micron tolerance in which they are printed any way, resulting in longer connected lines. Contributed by smartavionics.

Aligned z-seam inner wall moves

Inner wall travel moves are aligned with the z-seam. This reduces the number of travel moves and reduces the chance of more unwanted seams.

Relative positioning of infill patterns

Infill patterns are now positioned relative to the center of loaded models and an offset can be applied to control the infill more precisely and adjust it to preference or strength. Contributed by smartavionics.

Line resolution

Enables the user to specify the minimum allowed distance value between two points in G-code to create lower or higher resolution polygons.

Custom mode changes

If profile settings have been modified in recommended mode under custom mode, a reset icon will appear to notify the user. Click the icon to show the changes that have been made, and revert back to the default profile settings.

Bugfixes

  • Fix for layer numbers being displayed incorrectly when switching between solid and layer mode
  • Fix for Ultimaker Cura engine crashes on certain models
  • Fix for displaying visible settings
  • Fix for importing legacy .ini files
  • Prevent skipping user agreement dialog by pressing escape
