Cura asking for same 'per model settings' on every model

Recommended Posts



I recently started trying CUra 3.4.1 for my slicing software.  It has been a learning curve but successful prints come out great.  I am having one curiosity occur that I would like some help to stop. 


Every model I load says it needs the same 'per model' settings defined in order to slice.  In the message I get it says I need to define 'gradual infill step height, Prime tower x position, Prime tower Y position.'


I have my graual infill steps in my profile set to zero, so by my understanding the value in 'gradual infill step height' should not matter.  The box for grual infill step height is hidden in my profile because I have the infill steps set to zero.  Is there a way I can make this stop asking for a value every time?  


The prime tower x and y position values also cannot be set in the profile because they are related to dual extruder machines.  Since I have the number of extruders set to 1, i should not need to define this.  However, I notice that if I put a value in for infill step height it stops asking for prime tower x and y position. 


Anyway, it is needless extra steps in my slicing process to have to set the infill step height each time. Any help to get this set up so I don't have to do it would be appreciated.

Thanks. This message says nothing about “per model” though; it tells you that there are errors in some setting values. These settings may be “hidden” in your sidebar, but that does not mean they don’t have an (illegal) value. Use the search in the sidebar to look for the setting, and make their values legal (eg prime tower location has yo be inside the buildplate, whether a prime tower is printed or not)

Ok, so here is what I did.  I had to un-hide the gradual infill steps height box in my profile by putting a value in the gradual infill steps box.  Then I entered a value in the infill steps height box of 1.  After that, I set the gradual infill steps back to zero, which hid the box for gradual infill step height but retained the value in the profile.  Now that there is a 1 in there, regardless of the status of the infill steps, I no longer get the "per-model settings" error.  And it makes no further mention of prime tower position either.

    • "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.
