Problem creating Cura profile

Recommended Posts

I may misunderstand how profiles work in the latest release of Cura, please help. I am trying to create a new profile but every time I select "Update profile with current setting" my changes are undone and it seems to revert to some sort of default. I actually lost many hours of printing and filament today because I assumed my profile changes are saved and then I started printing, only to find out after some time that my changes have indeed not been made and the profile has not been updated. So I thought maybe I misunderstand things and I should create a new profile if I want to save my latest settings. But when I select "Create profile from current settings" my changes are also undone. For instance I want to turn retraction off in my new profile. But when I update the profile or create a new one, retraction is on again and all the other settings I have made are lost, and it reverts back to some previous profile. It even now randomly changes things like layer height and I haven't even touched that. And I can't change the XY distance under support. It jumps back to 0.2 no matter what I type in. As if some hard coded profile now exists and I cant change it.

I'm using Cura 3.3.1 I have restarted Cura. I've restarted my computer. I've deleted profiles and tried creating new ones. It looks like this starts happening every time I switch retraction off. From that moment onward Cura has a mind of its own. What's going on?

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
