Cura 2.1.2 importing print profiles from 15.04.5

Recommended Posts

I tried importing profiles from 15.04.5 and

  • does not read brim settings
  • does not import plugins like tweakAtZ
  • import dialog does not remember import path always goes to root of user folder

I also I think I saw some "calculated values" not imported or overwritten. like wall speed seemed different.

The legacy importer only looks at brim line count.

It also does not import plugins as those are not part of profiles.

The import dialog always goes to root user folder. All dialogs do that. It was different but I was told to change it to it's current behaviour. I much prefer the remembering as well, but it seems multiple people disagreed with me :p

 

What do you mean by "Calculated values" not being imported? Old Cura has no calculated values.

I've been writing software for 18 years.  People who disagree are always vocal.  Most of the time, there are MANY more people who silently agree with the status quo.  Even taking a poll is likely to be skewed.

It's a developer's job to ignore the occasional complainers and do what's right.  Switch it back.

Not if those people pay me ;)

 

In that case, replace "ignore" with "convince".

The "Open File" dialog of every OS has a shortcut on the left side to quickly get to the user's home folder, so whenever "last used folder" might be the wrong behavior, it is trivial for the user to get to his home directory. The opposite is not true.

On the Mac, the problem is even worse. If you search for the file you want to open and select it from the search results, there is some bug that causes Cura to do nothing (rather than open the file selected). Searching for a folder isn't even supported on the Mac. So you have to search for the file, select the item in the search results (But don't click open), then double-click on the containing folder in the breadcrumbs in the bottom of the view. Now that you are viewing the folder containing the file you want to open, you have to select it again and open it. Fun.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
