📢 Cura LulzBot Edition 4.13 v2.4 Beta Testing - Now with more MAC in every download!

TAZ 6 Start Gcode is missing. Not sure how many of the tool head types but the Single Extruder for sure.

I know this is a Cura thread, but perhaps you are in the firmware side too?
One thing I would advise is a bigger mesh grid for the Pro XT (and any BL Touch supported models), The 3 x 3 is quite small. 5x5 would be better

Where is the Change Log for Beta? I see 2.4 is out but I do not see a link on the download page to see what has changed from version to version?

I do [thank you] see it on the Release Notes page when you upgrade I’d just like to see what I am getting before installing!

4.13.0-Beta v2.4

Language on the Update Firmware page has been updated for clarity.

Updated firmware on the Mini 2, SideKicks 289/747, and TAZ Workhorse.

Reviewed and updated Galaxy Series quality profiles to be more accurate

Added PLA profiles for the AST285 Tool Head.

More profiles will be added for the Galaxy Tool Heads in the coming updates.

Fixed background color of add printer screen on MacOS Dark model

Fixed profiles not appearing for TAZ 5 and 6 single extruders

While you are at it, SLOW DOWN the probing. Also, raise the gantry more between probes. Lastly, make the probe points evenly spaced on the bed. The back 1/3rd is not being probed. And I am pretty sure the x/y probe offset defaults are dead wrong in the firmware.

I’m not sure if its a setting on my computer or what, but I am unable to find the download link for the new version of the Beta. I go to the page and it shows the new version but there isn’t a button to download it anywhere.

Releases are now on software.lulzbot.com

https://software.lulzbot.com/Windows/Cura%20LulzBot%20Edition%204.13/BETA/

The beta is still there, the page just works different now. Go to lulzbot.com, click the Cura LE button at the top, then click the icon for your OS below where it mentions 3.6.40. When it takes you to the next page to download you can choose 3.6.40 or the 4.13 beta to download.

Can you kindly sir allow a version for chrome & iPad os

All in-depth patchnotes should be added to this file prior to the release of a new version. We’ll likely add the most recent version’s patch notes to the main Cura LE page once we’ve determined we’re comfortable with it being our main stable release.

At the present time adding support for those two platforms would be a pretty low priority for us since demand for supporting them is low (most of our clients use Windows) and since Ultimaker Cura does not currently support them (to my knowledge) we would have to create build scripts specifically for them from scratch which would be a fairly large time investment that would likely be better used finishing up 4.13 and looking towards getting caught up with Ultimaker’s upstream and getting to 5. Potentially in the future this is something that could be looked into but for the moment I’d have to say unfortunately I don’t believe we have the bandwidth to add support for those, sorry.

Fair enough kind Sir

Thanks for that response
Can you comment on FW updates for the BL Touch supported models?

Im really liking the updated version of cura!
I’ve run into a strange issue though. The default print profiles for my taz 6 have completely vanished and I can’t seem to replicate them. Is there a file I can download to re-add them like there is for the 3.6 version?

Second thing I wanted to ask about is a feature request, Can we get a “keep heating the bed” toggle again? I don’t like leaving my bed hot after a print and I can’t find a way to turn it off after a print finishes. This was a feature in the 3.6 version So im hoping its hiding in the code somewhere and I just can’t find it.

Thank y’all for your time. ^-^

Just installed E4.13 v2.5 bata on my Mac Studio running macOS 13.5.2. I have a mini 1.5 with the latest firmware and LCD. A couple of things to note:

  1. Couldn’t get USB to work on Mac, use my PC as a test, says the firmware is wrong for my printer, but it’s the same version the software would install. I normally print from SD Card, so not a major issue.

  2. SL print head Nozzle size is set to 0.50, should be 0.25.

  3. Not a lot of options for settings. I’m assuming I can copy the settings from 3.x over to the Beta? Anyone else develop any Mini 1.x settings?

Everything else seemed to work as expected. I’ll continue to play. Is this the best place to report for general comments like this?

Regards,
Mike
