Values in saved profiles not (always) working

Recommended Posts


I created a profile with some settings and saved it in Cura (latest version). But when I select this profile not all settings are set. I think the reason is, that the values which are missing, are values which are "calculated" ones and I assume that therefore the value is not saved in the profile.


For example I set "Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion" to -0.25, saved it in a new profile. But this value is missing in the profile and it seems that it is not saved.


Is that something I have to live with it or is there any workaround?


If not, how do you handle such things? I want to have this value always, in every print (because of the "Elephant foot") but now I have to remember every time to set in manually.

      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.
