Cura 2.4 release bug

Recommended Posts

This worked in 2.3and 15.n and 14.n, did I use 13.n, think so, but does not work in2.4

When you create a customised printer definition and enter in all the settings and start/end gcode it is all saved.

If you modify any of the settings they are saved

BUT if you modify the start gcode the changes are NOT saved and so do not appear in the generated gcode

I can't reproduce the problem. Just created a new printer and then edited it and added the word "hello" to the start gcode. If I slice something, I see:

Are you using "Other" printers (I think, I do not have Cura on this laptop) which has a list of 3rd party printers OR are you using "Customised" printers and creating one from nothing? My problem is with "Customised" printers.

I have a couple of questions:

* What exactly are you changing in the gcode? Note that lines that start with a ; probably don't save, but that should not affect printing.

* Have you tried if this still reproduces with Cura 2.5?

* Can you try with a clean configuration (ie rename the appdata\local\cura folder to appdata\local\cura.bak so a new configuration is created)? I ask this not as a solution, but just to know if it may have something to do with your specific configuration folder.

    • "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.
