Cura 2.6.66 || Release Date: 1/15/2018

Cura LulzBot Edition version 2.6.66 contains 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, 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.

Firmware - 1.1.5.70

  • Adjusted wipe height for LulzBot Minis
  • Increase tx buffer
  • Adjusted PID settings for Aerostruders to increase stability
  • Change Baud Rate to 250000 for Minis for better communication
    • If using a different host, be sure to update your settings
  • Update probe positioning to avoid end stop collision

Start/End Gcode

  • Adjusted wipe location for Mini
  • Added re-prime end gcode to Aerostruders to prevent die swell

Material and Filament Profiles

  • Added experimental material category
    • These included base profiles are not refined, but are a good starting point
  • Fixed new profiles being associated to incorrect material
  • Adjusted flow rate for flexible materials on Aerostruders

Display

  • Added final print timer
