[Update: Cura 2.1.1 now available here]
Today we're proud to release the Cura 2.1 open beta
Cura has been completely reengineered from the ground up for an even more seamless integration between hardware, software and materials. Together with its intuitive new user interface, it’s now also ready for any future developments. For the beginner Cura makes 3D printing incredibly easy, and for more advanced users, there are over 140 new customizable settings.
Select Multiple Objects
You now have the freedom to select and manipulate multiple objects at the same time.
You can now group objects together to make it easier to manipulate multiple objects.
You can now undo and redo your actions, like moving an object or scaling.
The new GUI allows custom profiles to load easily and intuitively, directly from Cura.
3MF File Loading Support
We’re happy to report we now support loading 3MF files. This is a new file format similar to AMF, but freely available.
Intuitive Cut-Off Object Bottom
We’ve added a feature than allows you to move objects below the build plate. You can either correct a model with a rough bottom, or print only a part of an object. Please note that the implementation greatly differs from the old one where it was a setting.
64-bit Windows Builds
An optimized 64-bit Windows Cura version is now available. This allows loading larger model files.
Cura allows to set a number of lines/layers instead of millimeters. The engine automatically calculates the right settings.
You can now select different profiles for different objects and when in advance mode override individual settings.
CURA ENGINE FEATURES
Line width settings added per feature
Pattern settings improved per feature
Note that Cura requires a video card that supports OpenGL 2 or higher.
