Cura 3.1 profiles issue

Recommended Posts

Having possible issues with Cura 3.1 (I think). I have put 2 screenshots each of 3.1 and 3.0.4.

.

In 3.1, my material selection is highlighted orange, and maybe whatever that is telling me is the cause of the issues I see.

 

  • First notice there is a warning icon below the material (next to Check Compatibility). Is this telling me it does not like the selection? In 3.0.4 its not doing that. The UM3 has the PLA loaded, and identified it fine.
  • In the Recommend Setup, the layer height / speed is grayed out
  • In the Custom Setup the default Wall Thickness is now 1.3 (not 1.0). I even went into preferences and reset the defaults.

 

.

Again, this might all be a root cause of Cura not liking my material section. I am using Ultimaker brand spools. I have material set to Automatic atm. Even trying to select it manually from the list of UM3 materials does not help.

Help!

Figured out the issue (or a fix I should say). It was because 3.1 had no profiles in Preferences | Profiles! So I cleared the old settings by running:

 

rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/cura

 

Then relaunching which forced it to rerun the original setup. This is obviously a major bug upgrading. Did I miss some documentation on this?

    • "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.
