From this point on, the instructions are the same for either operating system: 6) Open the wxPython disk image, and run the wxPython installer downloaded in step 3). Next, install a couple more Python modules needed by Cura: 7) In a new terminal window, run: sudo easyinstall PyOpenGL. Log in with your Mac OS password, if prompted for a password.
- Sep 22, 2020 The 4.7.1 version of Ultimaker Cura for Mac is available as a free download on our software library. The size of the latest downloadable setup file is 108.7 MB. Our antivirus scan shows that this Mac download is safe. The program lies within Design & Photo Tools, more precisely 3D Modeling.
- The current stable version of Cura LE for Windows is v3.6.22 and Mac OS is v3.6.20. LulzBot Bio users will need to use version 3.6.22. Cura LE v3.6.20 Users: The following profile updates are included in 3.6.22, and can be manually imported into Cura LE. Note: MacOS versions of Cura LulzBot Edition do not include support for the M175 Tool Head.
Draggable settings panels
There was a lot of feedback from the 4.0 release about the collapsible settings panels. Based on this feedback, we decided to make them completely draggable. The print settings panel (prepare stage) and the color scheme panel (preview stage) can now be dragged and positioned anywhere in the 3D viewer. A double click of the header will reset each to their default position.
Updated onboarding flow
The onboarding flow on first startup has been updated with a look and feel more in line with the new interface. A series of setup steps will be shown, including Welcome, User agreement, Change log, the option to add a (networked) printer, and the option to sign up/sign in with an Ultimaker account.
Add printer menu
Various updates in the ‘Add printer menu’. The machine settings menu has been updated in line with the new look and feel of the interface, and it's now possible to directly add machines from discovered network printers.
Expert settings visibility
Previously, new settings weren't displayed in the expert preset even though they were expert-level settings. The latest features (e.g. Prime tower brim) are now included in the expert preset, for easy access.
Experimental print profile indicator
When an experimental print profile is activated, the settings panel header will now display an 'Experimental' tag.
More information about how to print advanced materials can be quickly and easily accessed via the interface. When a material is chosen in the configuration selector, an icon will appear next to it, which when clicked will direct the user to a 'Printing Guidelines' page specified by the print profile supplier.
Increased rendering speed
Rendering speed improvements that should be quite noticeable with multiple objects on the build plate.
Layer change script
This new post-processing script injects custom Gcode on a layer change, so that manual commands can be defined, e.g. park the print head. Contributed by wporter82. https://github.com/wporter82
Prime tower brim
Prime towers might need the extra adhesion of a brim even when the model doesn’t, so an option for a prime tower to print with a brim independently of the model has been added. This setting is available when the adhesion type is set to 'None', 'Skirt' or 'Brim', and the prime tower is enabled. Currently this option doesn’t work with rafts.
Prime tower Gcode comments
Gcode now contains comments to indicate when a prime tower is printed, like so:
Maximum deviation setting
Previously, the maximum deviation was hard-coded in CuraEngine to be half of the maximum resolution. A new setting has been added that sets the maximum allowed deviation from the original polygon when reducing model resolution. If line segments are shorter than the maximum resolution, they are removed, unless this introduces a deviation greater than the maximum deviation.
Smartavionics has contributed a new option for a gyroid support pattern, similar to his gyroid infill contribution. A gyroid pattern is relatively efficient with material, so gyroid patterns permeable to water can dissolve faster. It’s also easier to pull gyroid structures off your model with pliers compared to some other support patterns. https://github.com/smartavionics
The Marketplace now includes a direct link to a site where users can buy specific materials to work with the corresponding print profile. The link is specified by the print profile supplier through the contributor portal.
When a plugin or print profile in the Marketplace has updates, a badge notification will appear over the Marketplace button and installed packages tab, prompting you to update.

- Fixed an issue where the application crashed when opening the Ultimaker Marketplace after being logged in for more than 10 minutes. This was due to an expired token when checking network requests.
- For PLA-PLA support combinations, the horizontal expansion value has changed from 0.2 to 0 by default. This fixes an issue where unnecessary support is generated. The default value for PVA remains the same.
- Fixed an issue where choosing to 'Update Existing' profile during project file loading did not overwrite the current settings with what was in the project file.
- Removed the GFF and CFF materials from this version onwards. These materials are intended only for testing and are incompatible with the Ultimaker 2+
- Fixed an issue where the maximum resolution setting removed more vertices than necessary.
- Improved gyroid infill to stop very small (less than 10 uM) line segments being created when the gyroid infill lines are connected, increasing print consistency and reliability. Contributed by smartavionics https://github.com/smartavionics
- Previously, disabling build plate adhesion would also disable support brim settings. A support brim can now be enabled independently of build plate adhesion.
- Improved combing moves over thin model areas. Contributed by smartavionics https://github.com/smartavionics
- Fixed an issue where the printer selector panel text would exceed the boundaries of popups in languages other than English.
- Removed the ability to create print profiles with duplicate names in the print profile manager. Print profiles with the equal names would eventually lead to crashes or undefined behavior.
- Fixed an issue where the application would not remember the previous save path after saving again in the same session.
- Older machines running Mac OS X don't always support OpenGL 4.0+. For better performance the software can now detect if a machine doesn’t support it, and use OpenGL 2.0 instead. Contributed by fieldOfview. https://github.com/fieldofview
- Fixed an issue where the application would crash when selecting the support eraser tool.
- Fixed an issue where Z seams didn’t snap to the sharpest corner.
- Fixed issues where prints would have imperfections and on vertical surfaces.

Current Version: 3.6.22 [Release Notes]
Cura LulzBot Edition v3.6.22 Notes:
The Windows and MacOS versions of Cura LE 3.6.21 have not been tested and should be considered experimental. The current stable version of Cura LE for Windows is v3.6.22 and Mac OS is v3.6.20. LulzBot Bio users will need to use version 3.6.22.
Cura LE v3.6.20 Users: The following profile updates are included in 3.6.22, and can be manually imported into Cura LE.
Note: MacOS versions of Cura LulzBot Edition do not include support for the M175 Tool Head. An update is currently in development, please watch for notification of availability.

- Open Cura LE
- Select LulzBot Workhorse HE or LulzBot TAZ Pro Dual Extruder as the active printer
- On the right-hand side of the Cura LE window in the Profile section, press the drop down arrow, and select Manage Profiles
- Press the Import button
- Select one of the profiles downloaded earlier and press the Open button
- The profile will now be available in the Profile drop down list
Cura LulzBot Edition versions 2.6.69 and above contain firmware standardized for use with all LulzBot Mini 3D Printers, and contains important bug fixes. However, once your firmware has been updated to 188.8.131.52 or beyond, 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 (184.108.40.206 or below) through Legacy Cura LulzBot Edition v21.08.
Cura LulzBot Edition version 2.6.69 includes proposed LulzBot TAZ 5 slicing profiles with built-in filament temperature settings. Marlin Firmware 1.1.5 and later removes the built-in filament temperature presets from the Graphical LCD Controller menu. Users that prefer to use the filament temperature presets included with some legacy firmware can use the firmware included within Legacy Cura LulzBot Edition v21.08.
