Posted · Cura Gcode Settings not importing, Mac , Maker Select

Hi,

My prints come out fine with the samples on the SD card but when I go to print via USB with Cura, the raft doesn't stick and it is just dragging around some loose strands of PLA. I read that the best method since Cura doesn't have a profile for Maker Select is to import the gcode settings from one of the sample files. When I try to do so I get a message that says " Failed to import profile [...] Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0) "

What do I need to do to print ?

    I'm guessing that their g-code is created with 15.04 cura (aka Legacy Cura) and that you are using Cura 2.x (Aka "New Cura").

    The differences between these two versions are too big to be able to convert. I fear you either need to use the old Cura (and accept the fact that you won't get software updates) or manually convert the values.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
