How to reset parameters in a profile?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to reset parameters in a profile?

I accidentally changed nozzle diameter in my profile and now when I activate different printers using the same profile the diameter doesnt change according to the printers settings. How can I remove ONLY the Material Diameter?

In Cura, whenever you've manually changed a parameter, you should see a curved arrow next to the parameter's edit box. Clicking this arrow reverts the setting to its default, and causes the profile to no longer change that setting.

Yes I know, but the setting is stored (It is IN the profile) so the revert arrow isnt displayed.

Well, there's one surefire way to make whatever change you want to a profile:

* In Cura, choose "Show Configuration Folder".

* Exit Cura.

* In the file-explorer window for the configuration folder, open the "quality" folder.

* Locate the .cfg file for the offending profile.

* Open it in a text editor.

* (Carefully) make whatever changes you want. In your case, just find the line for the offending material-diameter setting and delete that line.

* Save your changes and exit the text editor, and restart Cura.
