Just done :wink:

Can you confirm I need to update the Moai firmware settings to laser power 55 as stated on the profiles page and pasted below ?
( I was set to 57 , but not updated anything since 1.16)-
Ive just updated my Cura settings to Cura35-moai-100um, so not sure what is still current?

if you updated to Cura 3.5, you only need the cura profiles that starts with “Cura35-”.

Ignore the two profiles with laser 55 for now.

thanks-
It was more a question of what the recommended laser (and peel setting) is via the hardware - or it this relflected in the current moai firmware already?
Thanks :wink:

Am I correct in understanding that the Moai changes have all been merged into the main Cura branch now, and I no longer need to keep a separate/old copy of Cura floating around? Great news if true!

To clarify, should we only be using the profiles labeled “Cura35” from now on? Assuming we have upgraded the firmware and to cure 3.5.

Thanks for the clarification

HI All,
Not sure if this is of any use to anyone but Ive just found the new Cura crashed everytime I tried to load an .stl file into the software from the moai’s datacard.
Moving the file to desktop to load into Cura fixed the issue.

Hi all. I have just updated to this version. I was using older 50um profile. I’m thinking that the new 60um is a similar profile?

Also

How accurate is the estimated time in this version? I’ve just got a reading of over 3 days for a print which seams a lot longer than normal. Cheers

simply put, ignore the time estimate.

Thanks. How much % is it out by roughly? The older version was something like 30% difference from the actual printing time. I need to figure an estimate before I start a large print.

Cura 3.5.1 was released shortly after 3.5 indicating a significant bug. There are reports of affecting Curaengine performance on surface. no direct report for Moai yet but let’s play it safe and update to 3.5.1 asap if you are now on 3.5

Asura 2.0 will have 3.5.1 curaengine

Could you make a 200μm profile?
I think that it is suitable for the test print use.
