Cura 3.6, Unable to import old proflies

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.6, Unable to import old proflies

HI all, I was recently put in charge of the relatively new Axiom20 printer our company has. However the Apex software (based off old Cura) is having issues. I found the profiles (.ini files)) and tried to follow Ultimakers guide for importing profiles but I get the error: <message>Unable to import legacy profile. Multi extrusion is not supported</message> . I tried Cura 3.51 but that just said there was no valid profile. Does anyone have any ideas on how to bypass this to import?

You're trying to import a single extrusion profile to a multi extrusion machine. The old Cura didn't have multi extrusion, so there just isn't a way to do the conversion (or well, there is, but it's way too complex to put all of that in code).

The profile I am trying to import is from Airwolf, but it does have dual extrusion support. although it looks like it might call for some other gcode? I am not too sure. I attached two of the profiles if that will help.

I am also having this problem. I am using the Axiom Dual and I would like to be able to import the profiles into Cura to be able to slice from the command line. Or at least be able to use Octoprint to slice for me. I try to import the ini file from Apex into Cura and it tells me that multi extrusion is not supported. The Axiom Dual is a dual hot-end machine.
