Cura 3.1 Unable to slice after importing settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.1 Unable to slice after importing settings


I'm an old user of Cura 15.04 and I'm finally switching to Cura 3.1.

My printer is a Kossel Mini with one extruder

I'm trying to import my main profile from Cura 15.04 to Cura 3.1 and it seems to work fine except for some settings.

When trying to slice a part is says:

Unable to slice with the current settings. The following settings have errors: Prime tower Y position, Prime tower X position

The problem is: I dont have any prime towers in my imported profil file as there is only one extruder. And as I have only one extruder I cant display theses settings in Cura 3.1 to modify them.

If I'm switching to another printer with two extruder I dont see my imported profil.

I searched for the profil file to try to modify it manually but I cant find it, I only see the default profils in the Cura installation path.

Do you have any idea to help me ?

One last solution will be to open both software at the same time and copy manually each setting one by one, but at first I want to try to import my profil.

Thank you

    Hi and welcome,

    This setting is as you said under the dual extrusion settings, i'm not sure if you can specify this one if the printer doesn't have two extruders (but you can simply set the number of extruders in the machine settings.

    What i would do to be sure, because of the huge difference between 15.4 and 3.1 and the minimal number of settings in the 15.4 is simply use a default profile and update the settings you need manually.

    I'm not sure that the import of settings can actually work nicely

    I too an a long time user of Cura and updated several times over the past years.  I just updated to 3.1 and cannot use my printer AT ALL.


    I download a print file and receive an error message "Unable to Slice with the current settings.  The following settings have errors, Extruder Prime X Position, Prime Tower X Position.

    I installed 3.1 and changed the settings from duel extruders to 1.  I have gone into the settings and un-checked everything that was associated to Towers and it had no effect.


    The program will not allow slicing, I am dead in the water.  


    Can someone tell me what settings need to be changed to correct this.


    I also tried to down load an older version and 3.1 keeps coming back


    HELP !
