Posted · cura 2.4 bug - printer profiles dissapearing

so we have a lot of printers in our shop and we use cura on all of them, ever since cura 2.4 came out one of our printers (a bigbox) continually has its profile deleted, forcing me to go in and setup a new printer. pretty much all of our printers use a custom profile so i dont understand why it always singles out our bigbox

    Could be a lot of things. All non-um definitions & profiles are contributed by third parties, so the quality will vary. My best guess is that there is a issue with the provided profile(s) which causes the issue.

    Hardly know what I'm talking about :) but could it be of any help to check the bigbox profile in an online .json checker, just to find a potential syntax error ?

    Think your best bet is to get a working profile from someone who also has a bigbox

    In this case I guess e3d is the supplier... why not ask them... I hope they still provide some support?

    Hi I think you guys have this wrong; @lance-greene says he is using a Custom profile. This does not use 3rd party contributions - that is when you select Other printer. With Custom printer you set it all up for your printer.

    This is I suggest a CURA bug. I suffered it with 2.4 Beta and 2.4 Beta 2 - but I do not recall having seen it in 2.4 Release. Before I installed 2.4 Release I went to the Machine_instances folder and deleted every printer file just in case

      • 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.
