The latest version of the Ultimaker Cura software slicer for 3D printers has a profile for the BIQU Hurakan 3D Printer available – make sure you download Cura 5.3 released a few days ago available on the Github repository of Ultimaker. Using Cura 5.3 now you can just start using your Hurakan 3D printer with the Klipper firmware along with the slicer without having to figure out what settings would work best or having to set a custom printer profile. The profile for the BIQU Hurakan has been contributed by Luke Harrison.

The BIQU Hurakan 3D Printer Profile in Cura is set for 120 mm/s printing speed by default (the suggested printing speed), although the printer should be capable of speeds up to 180 mm/s, so, you might want to try to increase the speed further. The results when printing at the default settings for the Hardukan with the Cura profile are quite good, so if you were having printing issues with a custom profile before you should definitely try the built-in profile.

The Cura 5.3 release of the popular slicer software for 3D printers does support not only the Hurakan 3D printer with Klipper from BIQU, but also the BIQU B1, BIQU B1 ABL and BIQU BX with built-in profiles that are ready to be used. The BIQU B1 ABL profile should be referring to the BIQU B1 SE printers that do come with automatic bed levelling functionality.

It is interesting to note that the print bed size for the X and Y axes on the BIQU Hurakan is set to 235x235cm and the build plate is indeed that size physical, even though the official specs for the device say 220x220cm as printing size. However, you probably would not want to print at the outer edges of the build plate anyway, though you should be able to if you wish to.

Aside from Cura slicer the official specifications for the Hurakan 3D printer from BIQU do mention compatibility with the Simplify3D software as well. Simplify3D is a commercial slicer for 3D printers unlike the free Cura software, meaning that you need to purchase a license to be able to use it. We have been using Simplify3D for quite some time already and have recently upgraded to the new Simplify3D 5.0 release, however while the software can work with the BIQU Hurakan there is no profile for it available even in the latest update 5.0.2, meaning that you need to set it by hand. You can use the available BIQU B1 3D Printer profile as a base to start from and then start tweaking the speed and other settings to get optimal results. Do note that Simplify3D uses numbers for printing speeds that are in mm/min and not millimetres per second, so, 120 mm/s in Cura would translate to 7200 mm/s (120 times 60 seconds) in Simplify3D.

Do note that although Simplify3D states that is officially supports the Biqu BX 3D printer there is no profile for it in version 5.0.2, the only profile for a BIQU 3D Printer is the one for the B1. Also, with a custom 3D printer profile we are working on for the BIQU Hurakan we can say that at this point the printing quality of the Cura slicer does seem to be a bit better compared to Simplify3D with very similar settings. So, we can suggest to stick to the Cura slicer when preparing your 3D models for printing on the BIQU Hurakan for now, there is no point in purchasing a license for Simplify3D.

Even though the software does have some really nice features it still needs to get proper support for the BIQU Hurrakan via an optimized profile to be worth the purchase for use with that particular printer. I’m working on optimizing the settings to figure out what works best in Simplify3D and as soon as there is a good profile, I’m going to share it for any users of Simplify3D, meanwhile you should stick with Cura 5.3 for the Hurakan as it is a good combination ready to be used.

It has been quite some time since the last update of one of our favourite slicers, namely the Simplify3D. And although it has taken quite some time, the new Simplify3D version 5.0 brings more than 120 unique features and improvements including a next-generation slicing engine, integrated print optimizations, and a feature-packed user interface to name a few. The Simplify3D software has essentially been redesigned from the ground up to help you push the limits of what’s possible and get your 3D printing up to a new level with the same hardware you were using. Unfortunately, there is a price to pay and the new release 5.0 does not come as a free upgrade to existing users. The price for a lifetime license of the new Simplify3D 5.0 is $199 USD, while existing V4 users can upgrade to V5 for just $69 USD. And if you do upgrade your license to V5, you can continue using the old V4 software as well…

Some of the top new features include:
– Adaptive Layer Height
– 3D Infill Patterns
– Automated Seam Hiding
– Dynamic Infill Density
– WiFi and Ethernet Printing
– Live 3D Model Tracking
– Automatic Mesh Healing
– User Interface Improvements
– Custom Support Shapes
– Rapid Support Structure Editing
– Powerful 3D View Controls
– Targeted Build Customizations
– Hole Size Compensation
– Short Perimeter Speed Reduction
– Small Feature Reinforcement
– Added support for over 100 new 3D printers

The latest Simplify3D Version 4.1 slicing software for 3D printers comes with a new Multi-Material and Multi-Extrusion support, so that now you can print involving multiple colors or customized material properties. The software now supports up to 6 extruders printing with different materials or colors simultaneously with the software automatically managing material changes using a disposable prime pillar or ooze shield.

The new version also comes with improved print time estimates. The updated algorithms simulate the actual behavior of the printer firmware for increased prediction accuracy. This allows time estimates provided by the software to more closely match real-world results, giving you confidence during planning.

Sequential printing is a special printing mode that allows you to optimize how multiple parts are constructed. The option allows you to print individual parts one-at-a-time to minimize the stringing that occurs when moving between models. This printing mode has been significantly updated in Version 4.1 with several new capabilities.

Simplify3D is known for its ability to process incredibly large or complex models with ease. Version 4.1 includes numerous changes that extend these capabilities, allowing the software to deal with larger and more complex builds than ever before. The new release also offers improved print time estimations by simulating the actual behavior of the printer control system for increased fidelity. The post-processing scripting engine within the software was also improved, allowing for rapid modifications to the build files prior to export.

The latest 4.1 release also adds support for 50+ new 3D printers from many popular brands. Additional enhancements in 4.1 include interface improvements, better movement sequences, faster scripting, a new Portuguese language option, 100+ bugs fixes and more!
