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?

    • "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.
