Cura updates delete custom profiles

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've searched for this on the forums but didn't see an answer. For what seems likes over 6 months whenever I update Cura it seems to remove all my custom profiles expect 1 profile that I deleted ages ago that keep re-appearing. Any ideas? Or is deleting custom profiles normal? Thanks.

The update didn't change my settings. I wonder if it is OS specific. I'm running W10 on a lenovo thinkpad.


I also allowed it to uninstall the previous version.


My extensions are also still present, though I have no idea if they work (I've never actually used them :| )

I allowed uninstallation as well. I went in more detail in the other thread....

When installing 3.2, I got an error about the config file, and CURA wouldn't run until I let it wipe out configurations. Is there an easy way to get all that back?


I did find a saved project file from fairly recently, and that brought in many settings (filaments definitions and all) but that seems tied to the machine.


Kinda a vague question, but any help would be appreciated - importing the few good settings from 3.1 would be awesome.  Thanks!


As a note, you might try loading an old project to get a possible snapshot of your settings at the time.

    • "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.
