Cura randomly keeps resetting itself. Mayor annoyance.

Recommended Posts

Okay straight to where the rubber meets the road,

I'm using Cura 3.1 on a Windows 10 system (didn't bother updating yet and haven't updated the firmware on the UM3 yet as well so 3.3 won't work anyway).
Every now and then Cura decides to reset itself completely,

This is absolutely infuriating, I use an array of 5 different printers for some of which I have to create printer profiles from scratch,
Can anybody tell me why this is happening? and How to prevent this, I already made a back up of all my material settings, but I can;t find an easy way to create a back up of my printers,
Even if I would have that, it would still be very annoying having to set up Cura at random points, I can't have that, the software needs to be trustworthy.
I want to be able to just run it the way it should work, not having to spend half an hour setting everything back up again.

I hope somebody can help me with this, is this an issue that keeps preservering in later versions too?
I never had these fidelity issues with Cura before and been very happy with the software, but if this keeps arising or isn;t fixable then I definetely will stop using Cura.

I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered before, I tried looking through the forum and there is a similar topic but that regarded material settings as far as I understood, and my problem and frustration lies mostly with having to set up all my different printers again.

Kind regards,
Ritchie

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
