Installation of different versions of Cura on the same machine?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Installation of different versions of Cura on the same machine?

Hello, I installed the Cura 3.4.1 AppImage on an x64 machine with Ubuntu 16.04, that I plan to use for 3D-printing on a Ultimaker 3 being purchased for an educational project I'm participating to. On the other hand, I just ordered a cheaper Geetech A30 for home use, since I'm a novice in 3D-printing. Now, I just learned that a customer of the latter printer couldn't get it recognized by Cura, after having set up a proper profile, and that the problem was solved by installing an older version of Cura, see discussion Geetech A30 and Cura for details. I thus wonder whether any conflicts could arise if I would install an older version of Cura, while keeping the current one, onto the same machine.
