Configuration errors, ALL THE TIME

Recommended Posts

This is getting a bit tiring now. I see this screen at least once a month, sometimes twice. Always when I have the least amount of time available to re-do EVERYTHING in cura. 




I always use the latest Cura, as I'm doing now. Always the latest stable firmware. New laptop, everything updated and working perfectly. Except Cura which has been giving me endless issues as has been reported on this forum at length, always relating to configurations and settings that go haywire.

I've recently installed the Cura backup extension in the hope that, if this problem can't be fixed, at least I can work around it. But no, after restoring my latest backup I'm greeted by this window immediately. So the backup has backed up the bug and restored the bug.


@Ultimaker guys, please help. I'm getting beyond desperate now. I'm increasingly using Simplify3d not because I want to, because I don't have time to check, repair, nurse, troubleshoot and re-adjust my Cura settings all the time. I appreciate the constant addition of nice features in Cura but can you please pull up the handbrake for a while and sort out this very fundamental problem.

That's bad, but you could turn off autobackup, and backup manually, then you should have a working copy if the error occurs next time.


Not very helpful for you, but I never had this issue....

The problem is not backup (I'm making backups manually in any event). The problem is that I constantly get configuration errors and to make things worse, backup seems to also backup the problem, so if I reset Cura and lose everything, and then restore my last backup, the configuration error is also restored.

I have by the way uninstalled and reinstalled Cura multiple times in the past but something I do (and by the sound of it something only I do) creates havoc inside Cura. I use configurations pretty extensively since I print with a wide range of materials and print cores. There are still some bugs in the way Cura saves and restores configurations, and I know to work around them, but I have no way of working around this issue. When this happens it's game over every time.

    • "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.
