Problems within CURA Preferences

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have an issue with Cura 2.1.99

After doing some try-and-error sessions with Polymax PLA I found good settings for my specific needs (small solid parts (infill 100%) for technical use with highest possible precision).

Then I created this material in the “Preferences” window (Cura->Settings->Material->Manage Materials )by duplicating the Ultimaker PLA to:

Display Name -> “Polymax PLA”

Brand -> “Polymaker”

I left Material Type, Color, Density and Diameter unchanged.

So far, so good…

But now I want to edit *Properties in [Tab] Information (e.g. Density and Cost) and several values in [Tab] Print settings by first clicking [Edit] and then changing some values.

*(Going to -> Settings -> Material -> Manage Materials, then arriving in the “Preferences” window)

But….

After editing values, then closing all, even Cura and then re-opening Cura and Preferences I find the changes I made undone!!!

Exporting and re-importing profile gives no solution, grrrrrrrrr!

And why are some Properties (e.g. Filament cost) grayed out and therefor anyway uneditable???

What am I doing wrong, or…… what is the real problem?

Might it be due to the fact that Cura 2.1.99 is Beta? (Why called 2.3 on download?)

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
