@James_Malenko yes, Cura is my work. But we also have Ultimaker to thank. It started off as an hobby project, and it really became awesome when Ultimaker took the risk of hiring me.
I’m not marketing myself as “the Cura guy” (which I get called quite a bit). Because I’m not that fond of people and I don’t want my inbox to fill with feature requests and bug reports.
(But it was really fun to go to a 3D printer meeting with my girlfriend and she suddenly noticed I was a local celebrity)
And the project is evolving. I’m no longer the only person involved. Right now a small team at Ultimaker is working on the next major version. As the code started to be come unmaintainable, and I could no longer handle all the requests and code changes on my own. So we re-wrote the whole front-end code, which was a lot of work.
First beta test result of this can be seen at: http://software.ultimaker.com/Cura_closed_beta/15.06/
Due to how we changed how we handle machines, this version makes it a bit harder to support custom machines right now. It also lacks dual-extrusion support and one-at-a-time printing. Which will all come at a later point. (older Cura versions are always available for those that need those features right now)
But the good thing about the GUI rewrite is that it’s completely plugin based. Something on which we will be expanding even more. But this means people can make extra tools, utilities and links to printers without having to dig deep in my old spaghetti code.
