With the challenges with the Mac version of cura, I’ve been looking at options to run a current version inside a Linux vm. The problem is that then I lose intel emulation on the m1 chip. Hence the question: are any of the Linux cura releases built for arm64? And if so, is anyone using one in a Linux vm on an m1 Mac?
I know Mac support is a challenge…have had a couple of very good and open conversations with support, so not trying to bust chops here, just looking ahead to later this fall when I no longer have access to an intel machine. If compiling cura on intel Mac is a nightmare, I don’t ever expect a native macOS arm64 version to see the light of day!
I don’t print live from cura, just use it to slice and build gcode, then upload to octopi to print. Also use it to flash firmware when I swap print heads, so also have to figure out if that’ll work via a vm connection.
