3.0.4

Post by LePaul » November 14th, 2017, 8:32 am

So far, this version is the first that likes to crash on me

Twice while uploading the print to Octoprint (which of course, causes you to loose all the work you have done)

It would be nice of Cura could recover from a crash nicer and re-open with your model/settings back on the build plate.

You can use "Save project" in CURA

Well yes, but it is hard to predict if Cura will blow up or not :)

S3D maintains you last setup upon load up, which is extremely convenient.

Yes, but CURA is not S3D : make a choice ! :-D

So far, for a great deal of my prints, S3D has really won me over.

The red hot mess of the Cura settings screen is a raging disaster to sort through. Documentation of how to use various features is poorly documented, at best. I mean, unless you are a devout follower on the Ultimaker board or here, so many of these features are unknown.

Cura does very well on the Ultimaker with the built in profiles and such. But on trickier prints that involve generating and moving supports as I need them, S3D still wins.

Performance wise....again, Cura runs awful slow on my new Intel i5 laptop and bogs down on my Intel i7 with a fast SSD drive and 32gb of RAM.

I keep trying to stay up to date with what Cura can do on each version. But I'm not convinced it's better. Not yet anyways

I have filed a bug on Cura 3.0.4 crashing. For me, it was when I was editing the color of my Aua Glow filament in the Materials Manager. Just that one filament seems to blow up when I try to change from default yellow to light blue. Very odd. Works in 2.7, so I consider this a regression.
