Re: Cura 2.6.1 is out

As I already thought, the reason is pretty simple; It has been quite unstable (They have been working on it for 2(!) years and it's still not quite there yet).

Re: Cura 2.6.1 is out

Well said neotko... CURA is the enabler - true word, and a value proposition that is perfect for companies, but also privat ones too - security.

Re: Has Anyone Experienced This Strange Movement?!

with latest Marlin, you mean Release 1.1.3 ?
I can´t get it running at my machine reliable - always strange things happens...
but in my case i guess, it's a typical Error80, so the guy in front makes mistakes during setup.

It's basic prints like this, where Cura just fails, drives me crazy. cura-fail.jpg to avoid situatuions like this I usually switch on z-hop. sometimes it helps, som...
