Reset materials and print profiles in Cura 2.7

Recommended Posts

How to reset the print profiles / material profiles.

By deleting the Cura folder in ~\Appdata and reinstalling Cura, I do not get the profiles back I used to have in older Cura versions. The Ultimaker PLA filaments came with 3 profiles: fine, normal and draft, I now only see fine. What happened with the rest?

P.S.: I know that the material/print profile section in not performing up to par, but I just can't understand where all the default print profiles have gone to. I ran into a lot of problems when creating non-Ultimaker filament materials in Cura. E.g. the print profiles for custom materials are not "adhering" to the custom material you created. I already reported this.

Switch the core or material of the second extruder. You probably have not-pva & bb-04 nozzle selected there.

Actually I had, but removing it, assigning an other core and material and switching back did the trick! Like I said, not performing up to par. But this fixes my problem, thank you for your help.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
