Which Cura To Download For Lulzbot Mini And Macbook Pro

Just downloaded CURA 3.2.0 and tried to get a simple STL file to it and could not. Exporting to a MacBook Pro. Tried various settings, one being the 'General' setting in CURA and it did NOT even look like the one shown in the help picture. Any ideas would be helpful, Thanks. In the Cura software, I see no Control Button. I re-downloaded the software twice and reinstalled, still nothing. Tried on OS X 10.11.2 as well as on a Windows 7 machine, same problem. I had the Rocktopus model loaded and the Lulzbot mini connected and turned on. So I’m dead in the water without that button. The Cura software is version 18.03 Please any ideas? MacBook Pro (2012 and later) Mac mini (2012 and later) iMac (2012 and later) iMac Pro (2017) Mac Pro (2013 and later) When you have a compatible Mac and the macOS Catalina download completes, but.

Cura LulzBot Edition versions 2.6.69 and above contain firmware standardized for use with all LulzBot Mini 3D Printers, and contains important bug fixes. However, once your firmware has been updated to 1.1.5.70 or beyond, GCode files sliced with earlier versions of Cura LE will no longer be compatible and will have to be re-sliced using the latest version of Cura LE.

We recommend using the latest firmware included within Cura LulzBot Edition to maximize long-term compatibility. Users that need to use existing GCode files can restore compatible firmware (1.1.5.64 or below) through Legacy Cura LulzBot Edition v21.08.

Cura LulzBot Edition version 2.6.69 includes proposed LulzBot TAZ 5 slicing profiles with built-in filament temperature settings. Marlin Firmware 1.1.5 and later removes the built-in filament temperature presets from the Graphical LCD Controller menu. Users that prefer to use the filament temperature presets included with some legacy firmware can use the firmware included within Legacy Cura LulzBot Edition v21.08.

You can find information about Cura LulzBot Edition, print profiles for various settings and materials, and information about a more advanced alternative program named Slic3r on this page. In general, we recommend Cura LulzBot Edition as it contains the slicing software, printer host, and is easier for new users.

What is Slicing Software?

Slicing software converts your 3-Dimensional model (typically STL/OBJ) and determines the 3D printer toolpath based on the options selected. It uses the nozzle diameter, printing/movement speeds, layer height, and other variables to determine the coordinates where it needs to move, and the rates at which it will do so.

This information is exported out of the program as a .gcode file. The resulting .gcode file is a plain-text file with a series of GCODE commands, and a list of the complete X,Y, and Z axis coordinates used for printing the 3D model.
