Cura by DAGOMA is a slicer. The 3D Files (in STL or OBJ) are sliced into small layers to prepare a GCODE. This GCODE is a file that your NEVA 3D printer reads and understands.
The first step is to download a 3D file to your computer. If you are looking for some, please follow this link.
Then launch ''CURA by DAGOMA'' software.
You can load/add a 3D file by:
On the right side of the screen you find the settings area. Let's have a look:
We have made it as easy as possible for you. You just have to select your PLA brand. If you are not able to find it, please chose ''Other PLA'' where you will be able to adjust the temperature manually.
When you add any 3D shape into Cura by DAGOMA, some buttons + informations appear. To make them available you may click on the object:
Do not hesitate to try them all! They are all very useful.
Feel free to check out our YOUTUBE channel , we have made a few videos to explain:
Here is the interesting part ( well, one more interesting part )
Anytime during a print on NEVA, you can PAUSE by pressing the button once, and the printer "pauses" instantly. You can then change the filament color, hide something inside your hollow print, change the filament type...
With CURA by DAGOMA, you can also anticipate, predict, decide when your NEVA will "pause" and wait for you.
To do so, you need to click on the "color change'' button.
When you click,
- first your 3D file changes appearance: form a "solid model" to "layers view",
- and this small ''window" appears:
Then, use the vertical slider to visualize the print, and decide when you want to "pause" it, and click on the "+" button:
You can delete a ''pause'' anytime by clicking on the "X" button.
The NEVA will wait until you release the print, by clicking on the NEVA button:

You think CURA by DAGOMA is not enough? Fine, you can go even deeper.
Let me show you the XML file that you can tune and adapt your CURA by DAGOMA to your needs.
But first, you need to keep in mind that it is at your own risk, and you can damage your amazing NEVA by doing that.
Also, please NEVER (oh never) change the Gstart and the Gend. You may not know now why it is important until you change it.
