Cura Gcode Settings not importing, Mac , Maker Select

Recommended Posts


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.
