Every time I update Cura I lose all settings

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Every time I install a new version of Cura, all my settings are lots. All profiles, all machines, all view settings.

How can I fix this?

PS: I'm working on a Mac


EDIT: some more info.

When I updated to v3.3, just now, it wouldn't start at first. I had to delete ~/Library/Application Support/cura, and then it started normally.

I copied the old contents back into this folder, but Cura still wouldn't load my old settings.

I've never had to delete this folder before, but I've lost all my settings absolutely every time I've downloaded a new version of Cura.

Hey @harald25, we have just released a new build yesterday with some fixes that addresses your issue.

You can get it from here. https://ultimaker.com/en/products/ultimaker-cura-software

Before you install and launch Cura 3.3.1, can you please make sure to delete the 3.3 folder in your cura configuration folder? \Application Support\cura\


Let me know if this helps.

    • "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.
