In this episode, we are analysing the first tab. Quality. Along the video we will experiment with the layer height, the initial layer height and the line width, including wall line width and top/bottom line width.

Also we had to change some parameters like the print speed and displacement speed, as well as the nozzle and bed temperatures.

This series is going to have 11 episodes, one dedicated for each of the Tabs in the Custom Print Settings menu in Cura 3.2.1.

Cura is one of the most common slicer software that are mostly used for 3D Printing. It supports a huge variety of 3d printers such as the BQ Hephestos, Original Prusa i3 MK2, Ultimaker 2, Ultimaker 3, Rostock, etc.

It allows us to print in 3d in three different ways:
The first is by uploading the .gcode files into an SD Card, that we will insert in our 3D Printer. Second, we can connect our 3D Printer to our computer via USB, and control it directly from our Cura software, and finally, there is an option to control some 3D Printers at the same time remotely, via internet.

Ultimaker Cura in the version 3.2.1, or the most recent version depending when you watch this video, is available both for Mac OS and Windows operating systems.
