I'll have to download it now and see if Octoprint is still missing.

Okay I see it in the Plug In Library this time and seems to work.

Now for the rest of the features.

I don't see OctoPrint.

Did you remove the hidden directories when you uninstalled Cure 3.2 Beta.
Uninstalling Cura leaves data in the two " cura\3.2 " hidden folders below.

C:\Users\" LoginID "\AppData\Local\cura\3.2
C:\Users\" LoginID "\AppData\Roaming\cura\3.2

After Installing Cura 3.2 I still needed to install OctoPrintPlugin.curaplugin for Cura 3.2

I let it uninstall previous versions and just put 3.2 in. No special tricks needed

Sadly the print failed, Cura's supports strike again. The supports were knocked off during the print, causing failure. On a PEI sheet.

So, I'll have to give it another go on S3D. I run into this problem quite often.

Try the new tree feature. Note that it conflicts with supports (either/or/none, not both settings). I actually like it, as they are easier to remove from the object.

Note that I have only printed once with the new beta release. Just downloaded the final 3.2.

I've been teaching my girlfriend how to use the Ultimaker 2+ and she did a print last night, in Cura 3.2 that came out very good. One thing I noticed when checking over her settings was that z-hop was not checked off. I've found that this is almost required with my printer since the nozzle rubs on the print. I may try that challenging print again with z-hop.

Here's the model she really wants to print.. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2770388

We are having enormous problems printing the figurines (girl, boy, dog, which are split in half) It's a fairly small print with a lot of details...maybe better suited for a printer like the Form2

Try it on the CR-10 (unless you have a form2 - I forgot what all you have). I haven't tried this particular print yet. Maybe this weekend. I have done some other prints with fine detail though.
