Adding/Modifying Printer

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks!

I've been using a few printers with CURA over the past years, including a dual extrusion machine based on a CR-10S with a Chimera+ from E3D (Dual extruder, Dual nozzle).


Every time I update CURA I end up losing all my settings. I still have something working on 3.5.1, but would like to use the machine with 3.6.0b, and hopefully do it in a way that I don't have to redo everything with each version of CURA to be released.


Is there some simple way to do this?

There is probably a bug that gets triggered with your setup that we didn't find about yet. Since this has been going on for some time with you, I expect it's the same bug.


Could you share the logs and the files you created? I can't promise that we will be able to fix it anytime soon (as there is always more work than time), but I can probably at least tell you what's wrong (and hopefully provide at least a workaround)

Hey, thanks! I most certainly can... I mean, I most certainly want to. What should I upload that would be the most helpful?


Really it isn't about saving what I have (I know my bed dimensions and such), but it would be nice to put one in that will have some future-proofing.




There's no nozzle offset, really nothing special at all, it's just a CR10s with lower accelerations (heavier head) and a second extruder. I was hoping I might take a built in profile and just make a couple changes and hit "save as".


(Aside: I don't think I remember the #2's being in the window. But unsure.)

Attaching a .3mf export, not sure if it has settings.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      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.
