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

We would appreciate an upload to the Fedora repository. The Cura-Lulzbot version there is completely unusable for the Taz Pro and reflects poorly on the great machine you have delivered.

@wlbaker -- while I'm not in any way associated with Aleph Objects, I do maintain a Nix package for Cura LE and update it whenever this page changes; if you install Nix on your Fedora box, you should be able to stay current. (If you have any trouble, file a ticket at https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs, and @ me there; my username is identical between this tooling and GitHub proper).

@wlbaker Thank you for the request! 3.6.18 should now be in the Fedora Repo, they are usually a few days behind us for getting it updated. We had missed notifying them on the last release, we apologize for the delay!

@charles-dyfis-net Thank you for working on that, we appreciate it!

And just as a note for future requests/issues it will be best to log them on this board for the quickest response and to ensure we have it properly logged: https://code.alephobjects.com/project/board/10/

Thanks again for all the help/feedback, we wish you happy printing!
