cura 3.1 keeps resetting values

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Does anyone know why the values in this cura version keep resetting ??

I do not have this problem in 3.0.4


For example i enter 100% infill and when i enter the next field it changes back to the 20% as it was orginally set to. In layer view i even see it change to full infill and a second later it changes by itself back.


Wall thickness is at 0.8mm changing it too 1.2 mm just makes it go back when clicking or using tab to go to the next setting.


almost all values are like this.. :-(


non of this happens in 3.0.4 with exactly the same settings.


Anyone else experiencing this?

This is because of a bug in the beta you used, which left your configuration in a conflicting state.


Please remove the configuration folder for Cura 3.1. When you restart Cura 3.1, it will reimport your configuration from Cura 3.0.

can you please advise where this config folder is?

Deleting the 3.0 and 2.7 folders wasn’t necessary.


The temperatures in the start gcode is a bug in Cura 3.1 that will be fixed in Cura 3.2

I kind of beg to differ, there was probably 100 MB or more in each folder. That's pretty messy and a waste of space. 

Thanks for letting me know about the start temp, that was driving me crazy, and it was probably the issue all along for me.

Can't wait for 3.2, using slic3r right now and it is so much cruder (in my opinion) than cura.

    • "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.
