Standard profiles missing.

Recommended Posts

Since I updated Cura to 2.6 (and just now to 2.6.1) I've lost my standard print quality profiles.

Fine, draft normal etc.

I contacted my local reseller and they said to try re-adding the printer.

This worked once, but now even that does not seem to work anymore.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried re-installing? I think something went wrong with some of your local files (custom materials? Custom machines?) that broke something.

You could also send us the zipped version of the all local configuration files so I can have a look (help-> show local configuration)

Ah, found the issue. You have PLA on your second extruder, but also a BB print core. We don't support the combination, so we only have an empty normal quality there.

As both quality types must be the same, you can also only select normal quality for the left extruder. If you change the right extruder to a AA print core (or a different material), you can select them again.

Ok thank you for the tip. Is PVA the only material supported by the BB core?

Or can I just remove the BB core?

Thank you

 

I think you have to have two cores in at all times. You can remove it, but I would then put in the other AA core in there.

The other AA core, was destroyed one day when filament got stuck inside the print head case and ending up in burning the print core wires.

(PS: I now know the UM3 is a pretty modulair design ;))

You can just "override" what is selected in Cura. What's selected in Cura does not need to be the same as what is actually loaded on the machine.

Thank you, but I think I will buy a new AA 0,8 core instead.

I don't like overruling and tinkering with company machinery.

    • 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.
