Cura2 LulzBot Edition Beta Testers Needed!

Look here for custom firmware, networked 3D printer hosts like OctoPrint, and more!

Cura 2.6.32

Need Initial line width back, to help bed adhesion 1st layer. Currently only initial layer height

Gradual Infill is simply awesome. Cant wait to play with it more.

Why is the default print speed 60 mm/s for all profiles and all materials?

When I try to print via USB, the X and Y axis homes then the USB connection is closed. Unable to print.

Tried copying start gcode from Cura 21.04 without any luck

I know someone mentioned using this on Mac but have you had success with it connecting to your printer? I've had no such luck. Using latest build.

iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)
3.1 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 1536 MB

I've tried different USB cables, turned the machine on and off without a change.

Yes it seems to connect and take some Gcode commands but then it stops and disconnects.

Now I have a new problem...when it connects it seems to check the version of firmware in the printer vs what it thinks it wants to use. In my case it says outdated and either wants me to use the new firmware which is not acceptable to me for several reasons. Or it wants me to upload custom firmware. When I try to upload the older firmware it continuously says it is outdated.

So now I am trying to delete all possible files from my har drive after uninstalling to at least see if I can get back to where I was.

no luck with getting existing Cura 21.04 1.0.2.21 firmware to work with new Cura Beta.

Tried manually uploading when prompted my firmware is out of date...simply repeats firmware out of date message.
Tried deleting all .HEX files and only putting in the older 1.0.2.21 in the firmware directory....no good
Did above and also deleted all machines and set up a new machine--no luck.

Notice that the material diameter can not be changed under printer->machine settings for FlexyDually. Defaulted to 2.9. I type in 1.75[enter] leave screen and it returns to 2.9.

When changing filament diameter in profiles it also does not change the printer->machine settings screen. But at least there it "sticks".

Can/should there be two different material diameters possible for dual extruders--should material diameter be found on the extruder tabs instead of on the Machine Settings tab??

In dual extrusion the print bed does not heat to the setpoints in the Print Setup.

In print Setup I have initial and ongoing heated bed set to 60

When starting print(from the SD card), the bed setpoint stays at 0
The other temperature settings in the start-up Gcode immediately adjacent to the bed setpoint seem to work: Here is my start G-code:

M140 S{material_bed_temperature}; get bed heating up
M109 R{material_soften_temperature_0} T0 ; soften filament
M109 R{material_soften_temperature_1} T1

I'm not that familiar with Gcode--the obvious question for me is should the "S" really be an "R" like the other temps?

When dual extrusion printing, the inactive nozzle is set to a low temperature--very cool

When it is time for the inactive nozzle to get ready for printing it starts to heat while the active nozzle finishes. However, the inactive nozzle does not seem to reach setpoint in time. Currently I am seeing about 10degrees lower than setpoint when it starts.

I did not see any place to change the algorithm to heat the inactive nozzle sooner.
